The Calvert Recorder - - Business Briefs -

At­las Foun­da­tions of Wash­ing­ton LLC re­cently do­nated four new gas weld­ing and cut­ting torch kits to the Col­lege of South­ern Mary­land’s Cen­ter for Trades and En­ergy Train­ing. The do­na­tion sparked a new part­ner­ship be­tween CTET and the Tem­ple Hills­based com­pany, which in­cludes plans for the com­pany to pro­vide guest lec­tur­ers to CSM’s trade stu­dents and for CSM to set up an ap­pren­tice pro­gram to pro­vide the com­pany with po­ten­tial em­ploy­ees.

“We can’t thank At­las Foun­da­tions of Wash­ing­ton enough for this do­na­tion and the op­por­tu­nity to build a new part­ner­ship,” CSM Vice Pres­i­dent of Con­tin­u­ing Ed­u­ca­tion and Work­force De­vel­op­ment Dan Mosser said in a press re­lease. “About 30 per­cent of our CTET stu­dents are al­ready in ap­pren­tice­ship pro­grams. We take great pride in mak­ing th­ese con­nec­tions and cre­at­ing pipelines be­tween our stu­dents and the mar­ket de­mand.”

The new kits will be used by stu­dents and pro­fes­sion­als en­rolled in CTET’s weld­ing pro­gram lo­cated at CSM’s Re­gional Hugh­esville cam­pus. CSM of­fers three Amer­can Weld­ing So­ci­ety weld­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tions: Cer­ti­fied Struc­tural Welder, Cer­ti­fied TIG Welder and Cer­ti­fied MIG Welder. All three cer­ti­fi­ca­tions pro­vide stu­dents with in­struc­tion on a va­ri­ety of tech­niques in­clud­ing oxy-fuel, gas tung­sten arc, gas metal arc and shielded metal arc weld­ing pro­cesses as well as weld­ing safety, cut­ting op­er­a­tions, op­er­at­ing oxy-fuel and cut­ting equip­ment, ba­sic weld­ing sym­bols and codes, al­loy met­al­lurgy and weld­ing in­spec­tion meth­ods.
