What a special class! They made it through 650 hours/100 days of skills training during Covid!

Trent Avon earned the High Pressure Pipe Weld Certification—this is a difficult certification to attain and the first time a student has earned it in the Tri-Rivers program. Congratulations to Trent!

Each student received several “tough to attain” welding certificates, including Trent Avon earning the High Pressure Pipe Weld Certificate—a first! Evan Kalbes earned perfect attendance. Their main instructor Tom Reynolds said welding is an art. Watch for a more in-depth story on creative pieces these students fabricated.

Welding & Fabrication is one of the few career choices that is in high demand at all times. Since welders are needed in almost every industry, it gives them the flexibility to switch industries without changing careers. Let’s face the facts; most career choices have ups and downs.

Welding on the other hand has endless opportunities that keep fueling the demand. Welding is a career that offers more choices of industries to work in and advancement opportunities than just about any other career choice. Welders are needed in almost every industry and those who want to advance their career have the ability to do so with additional training.

A few examples of the fields in which Welders can find career opportunities: Inspection, Engineering, Robotics Education, Project Management and Sales.
