Feng Shui Expert Kathryn Weber Offering 3-Day Feng Shui Classical Chinese Certification Training Course for Feng Shui Consultants this November in Las Vegas

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) August 21, 2014

Feng Shui expert, Kathryn Weber and publisher of the Red Lotus Letter feng shui e-zine, will be offering a certification course in traditional Chinese feng shui consultant course this November 12-16, 2014 at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas in Henderson, Nevada. The cost for the 3-day intensive is $ 1997 and will provide feng shui certification in classical Chinese feng shui for feng shui consultants. Currently, attendees are coming from Norway, Canada, the UK, US, Hawaii, and Canada. More information can be found online at http://www.beafengshuiconsultant.com.

The Red Lotus Master Consultant Course takes difficult feng shui concepts and simplifies them by offering templates, charts, and handouts that consultants can use to make complicated feng shui easier to practice. This three-day course will emphasize feng shui schools like flying star, 8 Mansions, and compass methods that are practiced throughout Asia.

Participants will learn important principles and guidelines for the changing time-space energies as the year moves from Year of the Horse to Year of the Sheep. Attendees will also be immersed in traditional feng shui practices such as using a luo pan, the feng shui compass most recognized in China and Asia and rarely used in America due to a dearth of trained consultants. All attendees will be exposed and trained in the fundamentals of feng shui as it applies to various types of residences and businesses.

“Today’s homeowners and business owners are looking for authentic traditional Chinese feng shui,” Weber says. “Businesses are looking for the same kind of feng shui that is practiced in Singapore, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, and China, and I offer the kind of training for consultants that will help them compete on that level.” Weber explains that the commercial and residential property markets are all looking for that extra edge to appeal to Asian and Western clients that traditional Chinese feng shui provides.

Learning how to recognize feng shui fallacies and faux pas can also create better environments more suited for Asian clientele. “I’m frequently speaking to businesses and architects who are looking for feng shui consultants who are classically trained and can bridge the gap between East and West, and who take a Chinese approach to feng shui,” says Weber, “and finding those kinds of consultants who also have a luo pan is rare indeed.” Better still, though, consultants trained in this method can command higher fees for this knowledge and skill and are highly marketable.

3) Easy ways to market themselves and how to charge for their services

Allegany College of Maryland to Offer CNC Machinist Training Needed by Industry

CUMBERLAND, Md. (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

In response to a national shortage of computer numerical control machinists, Allegany College of Maryland plans to offer manual and CNC machinist training this fall.

This high-quality training on state-of-the-art equipment is designed to help bridge the “skills gap” for employment in advanced manufacturing.

Jobs for CNC operators are projected to grow faster than average, from 15 to 21 percent, according to O*Net OnLine, the Occupational Information Network developed under sponsorship of the U.S Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration.

ACM’s Center for Continuing Education developed the CNC machinist training with support from the Appalachian Regional Commission. Needed equipment was purchased with a $ 93,000 federal grant. ACM provided equivalent support.

Geared to highly motivated students, the program teaches well-rounded skills for entry-level positions in industries needing manual and CNC machinists.

Students who complete the training are qualified to earn the industry-recognized National Institute for Metalworking Skills, or NIMS, credential. As it is designed to teach skills for successful manual and CNC machining, college credit is not awarded.

The extensive hands-on training is divided into six 100-hour sections. The first 200 hours, developed for the beginning machinist, start with manual machining and an introduction to CNC machining.

Classes cover the following: Introduction to Machinery, Measurement, Materials and Safety; Measurement Systems and Machine Tool Math; Semi-Precision Measurement; Precision Measurement; Quality Assurance, Process Planning and Quality Control Introduction; Metal Composition and Classification; Heat Treatment of Metals; Maintenance, Lubrication and Cutting Fluid Overview; Job Planning, Benchwork and Layout; Drill Press; Manual Turning; and Manual Milling.

Students will learn how to understand drawings, basic symbols and notations, and also how to interpret basic GD&T feature control frames. Critical thinking and problem solving are emphasized.

First-year students will attend the first 200 hours from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays in a six-month period starting in September. A second beginning section, if needed, will start in March.

Beginning machining students will have the opportunity to earn up to seven NIMS credentials in level-one machining. These are in measurement, materials and safety; job-planning, benchwork and layout, manual milling skills; turning operations: turning between centers; turning chucking skills; grinding skills; and drill press skills.

The remaining 400 hours in the training focus on CNC machining. Experienced manual machinists can test directly into CNC Program: Setup, and Operation Training. Students seeking direct entry must provide proof of experience.

The 400-hour CNC program, which also begins this fall, includes the following topics: CNC Basics; Introduction to CNC Turning; CNC Turning: Programming; CNC Turning: Setup and Operation; Introduction to CNC Milling; CNC Milling: Programming; CNC Milling: Setup and Operation; and Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Machining.

Classes meet from 5 to 9 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays starting in September and continuing through May.

Advanced machining students have the opportunity to earn up to four additional NIMS level- one credentials in programming and set-up operations and operator responsibilities in milling and turning.

Students who place into the advanced class will still have the opportunity to test for the seven preceding NIMS certificates. For more information on NIMS visit http://www.nims-skills.org.

Scholarship monies are available to help offset the cost of each course. For more information contact Rebecca Ruppert at 301-784-5338 or rruppert(at)allegany(dot)edu. Enrollment is limited to 10 students in each course.
