Where do you find inspiration each day?

Inspiration comes to me in many different ways, from watching students perform in class and seeing their skills progress, to seeing them graduate and become successful in their chosen area of the industry. Also, watching the industry change and develop with new techniques is inspiring and gives me new information to take back to the classroom. And, other times, inspiration comes from doing something as simple as going for an afternoon walk.

Welder and sparks

Bates Technical College will grow student capacity in the Welding program this fall, thanks to an infusion of funding for high-demand aerospace programs. The new courses will be offered in the evening to accommodate working adults. Students prepare for apprenticeship employment as welders, filling positions in industries including shipbuilding, industrial construction, energy fields, sheet metal, and auto body.

Students enrolled in Welding may also qualify for the Opportunity Grant, which helps low-income adults pay for education. Learn more.
