There can be no doubt that pipelines are good for the economy. We’ve been running a program to develop the labor force necessary to meet the demands. In our pipeline welding course we will take accomplished welders and bring them up to that next level where they are among the elite in the industry. So when they go out to weld, they do it right the first time.

I’m Rob Dockery. I teach a pipeline-welding course.

We strive to be the very best and you can’t train the very best unless you use the very best.

Rob
There will be a little bit of classroom talk and then the rest is mostly hands-on.

Rob
In our pipeline welding course we all have a number that’s put on the pipe that says, “This is my weld”.

What we look for in these welds are a perfect groove pass inside.

After we’re done and the weld is completed, that weld will get x-rayed, it’s just like when your body gets x-rayed, they can see every bone, everything in your body.

Vince
It’s not just the techniques but it’s also the philosophy when you get out there – the understanding of what’s required of you.

Rob
What I expect from my student is the highest quality. I’m going to push until you can give me what I want. We always have like a ‘toolbox talk’ in the morning, and that’s all about safety.

Rob
A lot of pride goes into what we do, because your name is on that weld. That’s what I teach here.
