Chuck Koppernole currently works at Technetics Group, Daytona Beach, FL. He is a frequent webinar presenter and contributor for EnPro Learning System. Chuck began his career in 1992 when he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force as an Electrical-Mechanical Technician for the Minuteman III ICBM missile system in Minot, ND. Upon completion of his enlistment in 1996, he attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL where he earned a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering. After graduation, he entered the U.S. Navy as to pursuit a career as a Naval Aviator, but an eye anomaly medically disqualified him, so he transferred his commission to the U.S. Army as a Combat Engineer. Through an Army educational program, he was able to earn a M.S. in Engineering Management through the Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, MO. In August 2013, Chuck took early retirement from the Army and joined the EnPro team as a Facility Supervisor/EHS Manager at the Technetics Group Deland Facility. His success in reorganizing the maintenance program and developing the safety culture at this facility led to an invitation to fill the same position at the Daytona Beach facility.
