I started my career in welding in a 9th grade shop class in Springfield Mo. in the late 70’s. Followed by 3 years for 3 hours a day in High School in Memphis. Following that, over 30 weeks of training in the US Navy’s C-1 Welding School. Guess what, after all of that training, I still had things to learn. Its a lifelong experience and I would love to share some of it with you or your organization.
Does your organization need welding training but do noes not have the time to enroll employees in long term commitment classes, most of which will go over subject matter thay alread know? I can help with customized training
As a welder in various industries over the years, I have had to learn new skills without the aid of an instructor. Let me share some of the things I had to learn the hard way with you or your organization. I am proficient at most hand held processes and base metals. I can help you get “over the hump” on passing basic and advanced welder qualification tests.
In addition, training for welding inspection is available. I have 35 years experience on hands as a welder and have been involved with code compliant welding for about 33 years. I 1st certified as a US Navy QAI (Quality Assurance Inspector) and CMPO (Controlled Material Petty Officer) in 1985. I 1st certified as an AWS CWI in 1990. I can teach you inspection skills that will help you be confident in areas related to inspection of weld.
