Educational Facility – Lynnes Welding Training, Inc. – Fargo, ND
“Lynnes Welding Training was the vision of Dave Lynnes, owner and CEO of the welding school. Lynnes has more than 25 years of experience and a passion for the welding industry, having served in the trenches as a pipe welder and achieved AWS and CWB certification as a welding inspector and an AWS certification as a pipe welder. Since Lynnes Welding Training opened its doors in 2006, the school has sought to provide its students with the best possible welding instruction. Mr. Lynnes and his staff have formed an advisory committee with individuals whose background and diverse experiences best benefit the curriculum of the school and the recruitment of students into the school and the welding field. The advisory committee is composed with a balance of industry leaders, educators and staff. Lynnes Welding Training has also made it a priority to educate post-secondary school administrators, teachers, guidance counselors, and others in key positions to provide career advice to students of all ages. Staff from the school speaks to local schools and career fairs, and makes presentations at career and technical professional development conferences. They’ve also collaborated with the North Dakota Boy Scouts to help host Welding Merit Badge clinics.”
