April is National Welding Month!

Since 1996, the American Welding Society (AWS) has designated April as National Welding Month. Throughout April, AWS celebrates the welding industry and brings awareness to its available career paths.  

"National Welding Month is an annual opportunity for the welding profession to show the world that we are more than torches and sparks," said Stephanie Hoffman-Wedding, program manager of workforce development at the AWS Foundation. "Welders have to understand shop mechanics, blueprint reading, mechanical drawing, physics, chemistry, and metallurgy. The more technological advances our industry undergoes, the more skills and knowledge we need to do our jobs successfully."
