Welding Graduates Earn Many Certifications

Congratulations to Tri-Rivers-Adult Education’s Welding, Fabrication & Allied Processes program completors. The cohort included Trent Avon, Jace Chevalier, Brock Howard, Evan Kalbes, Nicholas McCall and Elizabeth Santillan.

What a special class! They made it through 650 hours/100 days of skills training during Covid! Each student received several “tough to attain” welding certificates.

    Trent Avon earned the very difficult High Pressure Pipe Weld Certificate—a first!



Evan Kalbes, left, earned perfect attendance. Pictured with his lead instructor, Tom Reynolds.
