.South Point members had a chance to take welding test today and become an AWS Certified welder. This is a hard test and a long night, four students passed today. Many place you would need to pay to take a test and become a certified AWS welder. In the Sheet Metal Workers apprenticeship, it is part of the apprenticeship pathway and is paid for by the apprenticeship program. This is members helping members, because the apprenticeship program is paid for with contributions from members out of their hourly rate. Nice Job Bryan, Tristan, Ryan and Jonathan, congratulations!
Today we passed our VA audit and planned a pathway going forward to get our veteran apprentices their well earned VA education benefits as they go through the apprenticeship.
