MO­HAWK COLLEGE IS PLEASED TO AN­NOUNCE THE PRO­MO­TION OF

WAYNE OSTERMAIER TO DEAN, SCHOOL OF SKILLED TRADES AND APPRENTICESHIP

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

“Wayne has a proven track record of de­vel­op­ing strong part­ner­ships with in­dus­try that ul­ti­mately ben­e­fit stu­dents and em­ploy­ers. This, com­bined with his ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in both in­dus­try and ed­u­ca­tion, will en­sure Mo­hawk con­tin­ues to main­tain and grow its po­si­tion as a leader in skilled trades and apprenticeship train­ing.“

Wayne has served in the ca­pac­ity of Act­ing Dean since Oc­to­ber 2016 and has been with the college since 2010 as the As­so­ciate Dean, Con­struc­tion and Build­ing Sys­tems. Over the course of seven years, Wayne was suc­cess­ful at grow­ing the scope of pro­grams of­fered in­clud­ing the devel­op­ment of two new pro­grams, Hor­ti­cul­ture Tech­ni­cian (apprenticeship) and Me­chan­i­cal Tech­niques (post­sec­ondary). He was also in­stru­men­tal in ob­tain­ing ac­cred­i­ta­tion for two newly de­vel­oped and min­istry ap­proved, On­tario College Cer­tifi­cate Pro­grams: Power Engi­neer­ing Tech­niques and Power Engi­neer­ing 3rd Class. Prior to join­ing Mo­hawk, Wayne had a suc­cess­ful, 30-year ca­reer with Hy­dro One where, most no­tably, he served as the cor­po­rate lead for Hy­dro One Net­works through the re­view and re­vi­sion of the 2009 Elec­tri­cal Util­ity Safety Rules. Wayne has proven to be a stu­dent-fo­cused and col­lab­o­ra­tive leader to the team of ad­min­is­tra­tors, sup­port staff and fac­ulty within the Skilled Trades and Apprenticeship. His suc­cess in fos­ter­ing and em­pow­er­ing high func­tion­ing teams is ev­i­dent in the in­no­va­tive and lead­ing-edge ap­proach that fac­ulty and staff have de­vel­oped with their stu­dents and pro­gram of­fer­ings.
