Mission: Success | Welding & Fabrication


I first heard about this program, and it
was something different. It was sort of out of my comfort zone and I was willing
to step out of my comfort zone. So what we do here is we develop all the
basic skills, all the welding: MIG, TIG, stick. At first it was rough but, you know,
practice makes perfect. I did a lot of hood time. I like using my
hands, working with my hands, even in my free time. I’ve always been in the garage,
since I was raised. I love having a shop environment, just being able to weld
make things, repair things. I love it. It’s wonderful. Tristan is one of my seniors. You could see his maturity has developed. He actually got a welding job
this year. He’s pretty much grabbed that bull by the horns and he’s just running
with it. All different positions–right-handed, left-handed, uphill, downhill, vertical, horizontal, from point A to point Z, everything about welding. Now they actually know how to fix the machines, how to use the machines, and do all the proper techniques. They could work on projects that they like and do more things that interest them. And once they improve on it, they could increase their skills, which will help them for getting a career and a job further down
the road. There’s a lot of money in the industry, depending on how good of a welder you can be. I’m looking to graduate, go to college, get my certifications, and then move out into the field. Just welding, welding, welding. The hood time is what I really look forward to.
