Welding program makes SENSE

Students in the Central Lakes College Welding program in Brainerd have
additional benefits as a result of a new partnership with the American Welding
Society. Membership in AWS brings
national accreditation acknowledged by SENSE – Schools Excelling through
National Skill Standards Education. With the start of the spring semester, CLC Welding
students begin American Welding Society training that leads to Level I Welder
Certification. Students then advance to Level II during a summer session. Upon graduation from Central Lakes College and
completion of the SENSE program, the student obtains industry certification as
a Level II Advanced Welder. The affiliation with AWS
gives students access to technical resources and a national registry of
apprenticeships and career opportunities. Employers profit by knowing CLC
graduates have the skills required for success. Less on-the-job training means
reduced cost of hiring. Instructor Mike Reeser will obtain Certified Welding Educator certification in the spring after completing proficiency requirements from AWS March 12-17 in Indianapolis. The certification confirms his ability to specifically direct and perform operations associated with welder training and classroom instruction.
