After years of working in the industry and owning a business, Richard Becker decided it was time to give back. Now an instructor for the machine tool-CNC program, Becker describes his teaching philosophy as “hands-on based learning with results-oriented evaluations.” He finds it very rewarding to help students get their career in manufacturing started; hearing of his students’ successes is the greatest reward.

Becker and his family currently live in Chetek, Wis. In his spare time, Becker races motorcycles with his two sons, Joshua and Mathew. He also enjoys building vintage race bikes, water skiing and fishing.
