Central Campus troubleshooting teams advance to finals

For the third year in a row, the San Jacinto College Central Campus process technology student team has qualified for finals in the North American Process Technology Alliance (NAPTA) Trouble shooting Skills Competition.

This is the first year, however, that the campus is taking two teams to compete, the ‘Rockin’ Ravens’ and the ‘Rajun Ravens’.

Each year the team has entered they have walked away with a first place title, and this year they are looking to do it again.

“Of course we hope to win again,” said Ken Jackson, professor of process technology and team sponsor. “Our teams spend months training and are truly prepared for the competition. There are more schools competing this year, but our teams are confident.”

NAPTA is the standard–bearer of process technology curriculum. The Alliance audits process technology degree programs in North America and endorses those that meet its criteria. Several colleges have received the NAPTA endorsement, including San Jacinto College.

The teams tackle the finals competition Friday, April 26 and Saturday, April 27 in Gonzales, Louisiana.
