Grads Spring Ahead with New Career

2015 Spring Welding Class Graduates Ready for New Career

Congratulations to our Spring 2015 graduating class!

We wish them prosperous new careers as American Welding Society Certified Welders.

Instructor Levi Purins presented certificates of completion to:

  • John Hartigan of Edwardsburg
  • Carl Terry of Edwardsburg
  • James Dye of Kalamazoo, MI

Spring is a time of rebirth when nature starts anew, and WTEC’s newly certified welders are no exception. In the eight short weeks it takes to complete our welding course, these students have developed aluminum welding skills that make them in-demand to industrial employers.

Levi has been an Instructor and Welding Inspector for many years with WTEC and continues to do an outstanding job in graduating highly skilled welders.

About WTEC

The Welding Technology Education Center (WTEC) was born from industry need to fulfill industry need. WTEC is an American Welding Society Educational Institution member located at Fab Masters Company, Inc. in Marcellus, Michigan. Due to experiencing firsthand the shortage of skilled welders, Fab Masters President & CEO Ron Troxell decided to start his own welding training program. As a result, WTEC courses are designed with employers’ requirements in mind. Instructors then teach the theory and facilitate the hands-on lab practice needed for students to become capable of producing high quality welds. Consequently, WTEC is confident our graduates gain the welding skills needed to enter production or industry-level positions.

WTEC partners with Michigan Works to provide training to unemployed and displaced workers.
