Hello, Dave here,
Being part of the welding industry for over 30 years, I still enjoy learning something new about welding and sharing my experiences. I have worked as a welder, supervisor, educator, inspector, and business owner. I have also been a member of the AWS for over 26 years and I have held officer positions at the local and national level.
I know there are several other YouTube channels featuring videos and welding lessons out there, but I hope to share my experiences with you so you can continue to learn. We will put up a new blog post every Wednesday. Some of the articles will have videos and others will be information about the welding industry and our school.
