Rick Walther is an Automotive Maintenance Technician Instructor at Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College's Rice Lake campus.

Rick spent 17 years working at an independent transmission repair facility. This prepared him for the next step as a dealership technician. Here, his focus was on transmissions and all aspects of vehicle repair. The years of experience and training that Rick received in the automotive field prepared him for training students in the repair of today's automobiles with real experience and the know-how to make the repair, as well as, explain how the students need to do it.

In his free time, Rick enjoys spending time with his family at high school sporting events, hunting, fishing and enjoying Northern Wisconsin's great outdoors.
