Choose a Career That Keeps Your Hometown Connected

After testing out the waters of a four-year college and a few other career paths, Golden West Technician Gaige Odenbach found his career. As a bonus, it also brought him back home to Gregory.

“If I knew back then what my career path would be, I would have started it sooner,” says Odenbach. “I love working in my hometown and helping the people I know, the people that helped me when I was growing up.”

Odenbach completed Mitchell Tech’s Telecommunications program, now called Wi-Fi and Broadband Technologies. This two-year program prepares students to work with and configure modern broadband networks that carry voice, video and data traffic across South Dakota and the world.

“I love working in my hometown and helping the people I know, the people that helped me when I was growing up.”

Many Golden West Technicians, like Odenbach, have attended Mitchell Tech and offer positive reviews for the program and the career it provides.

“All the teachers were great, it has hands-on learning and high career placement,” says Winner-based Golden West Technician Jonah Beck. “I love the great people I work with and how this job keeps me on my toes – dealing with cut fiber one day and rewiring a house the next.”

Students in the Wi-Fi and Broadband Technologies program at Mitchell Tech learn about Wi-Fi, data switching and routing, fiber optics, Voice over IP, streaming video, Internet of Things and other emerging technologies.
