Combination welding involves molten metal, high voltages, sharp edges, and many other hazards welders can run into. Building safety, comfort, and meaning with this equipment is extremely difficult to do in a traditional classroom setting. To master tools of this power and processes that are this precise,it is important to get your hands dirty. STVT is committed to providing as much time as possible into practicing these skills in a hands-on setting This way, students can bring the principles learned from books out of the pages and into the metal.
Hands-on training builds confidence, precision, and speed. On the job, welders have time constraints and pressure to complete a piece, which may not allow them to experiment and refine their technique. Welders who haven’t already built up a toolset, can lead to low-quality work and unsafe work situations. By giving our students the time to master welding skills before they ever step on the job site, we can train them to keep their work clean and team safe, creating the groundwork for a successful career.
