I had heard about welding through a friend beforehand and then was encouraged by my YSO to enroll after I met with her to discuss job opportunities. I knew this program was a great opportunity once we looked into it more. The hands-on training is my favourite because you get a real feel for the industry and, personally, I need that hands-on training aspect to keep me engaged. This program has helped me get one step closer to becoming a welder which is something that I have wanted over the last year. I was a little nervous at first in regard to the schooling aspect because I felt like I wasn’t fully prepared, but you get out what you put in and hard work in this program really does pay off. If you enjoy welding already or have done it before, this program is definitely something that you want to get into!
