The weld school is a go and is scheduled to begin December 1, 2005. It will be held at the Skill Center facility in Erie, PA and will be a 2 shift operation. The course was "Custom designed" to meet our needs and the needs of other local manufactures.
It is a pilot program in this area and is being very much scrutinized by the grant officials to be a model for the thirteen county region. We are ramping up our efforts to find 10 suitable candidates and several replacements. The school is scheduled for 160 hrs 8 hours a day for approx. 20 days.

Custom Engineering hosted the first ever in house welding school. Normally our welders are hired already fully qualified and only require training on specialized processes. School began on Feb. 28, 2005 and ended on Mar. 31, 2005.
We had 10 students. Five were on 1st shift and 5 were on 2nd. Partial funding was received from The PA Workforce Investment Board and was coordinated through Clarion University and Q.I.S. our of Rochester, NY. We had two instructors, one for each shift, which held classes in an area set aside on the shop floor. The classroom setting was within an isolated section of the shop floor. Here they would feel as if they were in an actual production environment.
