This month’s news from Pro Weld’s Southern Oregon welding shop brings the introduction of three new Rogue Community College (RCC) interns. Although the Cooperative Workforce Experience (CWE) program does not draw news throughout Oregon, it is what Donald Trump’s “Apprentice” tv show endorses through real-to-life workforce experience. The CWE program is positive news for the Rogue Valley and the education system in Oregon.
The CWE program offers 11-weeks of on-the-job training, a requirement of RCC’s students before graduation. These three interns are not expert fabricators, but use their education from RCC will be training at front desk for the secretary position. Interns will learn about welding specific industry terms such as: Miller Welders (TIG, MIG) and the acetylene gas burning processes used at Pro Weld.
They will also have hands-on knowledge of QuickBooks while learning about the types of industrial welding and residential jobs we facilitate. The welding jargon these interns will learn to discuss will include an assortment of fabrication jobs such as: welding for steel I-beams, fabrication of commercial metal bridge (cable railings) and metal gates.
In other news, Pro Weld introduced a new welding expert to our fabrication crew. They are focusing on growing the fabrication team. Pro Weld continues to see welding jobs awarded throughout the Southern Oregon region and international companies seek them out for their expertise and welding professionalism.
Our fabricators are thrilled to finish the latest bridge work, structural steel erection and handrails projects before Halloween hits.
