#myNCstory – Welder Apprenticeship: Expert faculty pass on the torch


(upbeat music) – All of us who are presenting
the welding program here have been welders for many years. So a lot of us are coming
in with welding background. We’ve actually done
all the different types of welding positions that
we are teaching the students and apprentices here. – They really do try to help you. I get to learn stuff here that I wouldn’t necessarily learn at
my shop, things like… a Piranha or a shear or a press. – You can read all of
kinds of books about it. You can be told how to do it this way, but until you get on the shop floor and you actually have a torch in your hand or a welding whip and you’re actually performing on some field cutting, you’re actually performing the welding. – You know, you’re basically looking into your future of your company
by hiring your apprentice. – These students are coming out and they would be a plus to any company who hired them on as an apprentice.
