Career Pathway: Advanced Manufacturing – Welder


Ny name is my Michael Kinsel, I’m in the
industrialized arts comprehensive welding program. My name is Travis Allen, I’m here at the industrial arts institute studying welding. Lucas Mullen, Industrial Arts
Institute studying welding. It’s taught me obviously how to weld but to have the
confidence that when I go into the real world that I will be able to apply what
I learned here into a real job. I learned a lot about all different types of
welding like oxy fuel, and meg and dig and everything and I’ve got a couple
search done well not even halfway through the program so that’s we learned
what we learned a lot really quickly here too, and I also learned a lot about the
work environment and being here on time and all this, the tools to all the other
tools and just like the shop in the fabrication and all that too. We spend
time with classroom doing blueprint reading, going over safety, and working on
math. The most valuable skill I’ve learned is welding and all the welding techniques. The most valuable thing I’ve learned
here is obviously how to weld, I learned how to do a skill that is one of the
highest in-demand skills in the country, and I can go out into the world and
pretty much write my own ticket. The most valuable skill I would say that I
learned from this program would definitely be the welding, but I mean the
other stuff too helps to become a rounded welder and everything, but I’d
say that the welding itself definitely the best skill I’ve learned here. I’ll be
certified in multiple areas of welding and I can apply those to most any
welding jobs. After I graduate I plan on looking for jobs everywhere in Northern
Michigan. As soon as you graduate, you’d probably
ready for your job in the welding industry.
