Jeremy Martin, a technical learning specialist, brings the “why” to his weekly training courses for new employees at the Kansas City National Security Campus. Jeremy knows the importance of high-standards, because he was once on the receiving end of it. In 2003, he started his Air Force career supporting the Minuteman III, where he worked on all launch critical electrical, mechanical, and electronic equipment necessary to keep the missiles ready and on alert.
Jeremy delivers highly engaging and motivating Mission Ready Foundations training to all newly hired engineers, hourly employees and Integrated Supply Chain supervisors. This training lays the foundation for their future training.
“While the curriculum itself is very technical, I use the opportunity to impress how vital the KCNSC mission is to our nation’s strategic security,” says Jeremy. “I also stress how absolutely important it is that the quality of our products be of the highest standards, without compromise.”
Since starting at the KCNSC, Jeremy has met a number of great trouble-shooters, mechanics, etc. However, he stresses the importance of following work instructions to the letter, every time we work on product.
He will never forget the first time he put his eyes on the dark cone-shaped object – one of our country’s nuclear warheads.
“I really understood that the mission was bigger than me and protecting the weapons system ensuring it is done right the first time, every time, is vital,” said Jeremy. “The world is a very dangerous place and the results of our collective work provides a safe, credible, reliable deterrent to any nation or non-state actor that may try to do us harm.”
Jeremy brings that passion and personal connection to the deterrent to work every day and helps train the next generation of workers to support our national security mission.
