The Welding Cohort recently celebrated its end of program milestone. Twelve students were enrolled in the introductory program which gave them the opportunity to access two massive welding trailers right on HSS property.
The trailers are estimated to be worth a reported $1.8 million and allowed for the students of a variety of backgrounds the distinct opportunity to utilize small classes and enjoy hands on experience.
The demand for trades people is high and programs like this seek to fill that need.
From the welding students:
We would like to extend our deepest gratitude towards SD 78 Fraser Cascade, Thompson Rivers University and SD 73 Kamloops/Thompson for making this program offering possible.
We would also like to extend a special thank you to our instructor Michael Grainger for all his guidance, mentorship and dedication to the learning and building of both hard and soft skills.
