Two students about to weld


Landon W., Grade 12 Student

Since the addition of the new equipment, I am now able to learn more about different types of welding. I have never welded with the TIG welder before and am excited to learn the new techniques required to create a successful weld. Due to the new equipment, I have found a passion for welding and plan on pursuing a career in the welding trade.

Jennifer K., Career Coordinator, North Vancouver School District

I have been to many professional development workshops over the years and found this [CWBWF] training to be the strongest, best organized and relevant instruction I have received to date. Thank you for the opportunity.

Wendy W., Principal ILC – SD 63

This past [camp] week has been brilliant! The students in the TASK program were engaged, productive and proud of their metal projects. A true testament to successful student engagement is when they are still busy working on their projects after class time has ended.
