CWA foundation Training
Several manufacturing teachers in the area got together
August 24 &25 to get updated with welding curriculum and practical skills
in welding from the CWA Foundation (Canadian Welding Association Foundation). Sacred
Heart High School hosted the event by inviting Bruce Grey Catholic and the
Blue-water school board manufacturing teachers and providing the facility. Andrew
Bartlett from the CWAF came down to make us aware of the great things the CWA Foundation
is doing for educating the high skilled workers of tomorrow. As teachers it is
critical that we stay current on the methods and curriculum resources
available. Andrew showed us the new Acorn Welder Program and the several
resource modules inside the program. There was certainly a lot of good tips and
learning presentations involved in this high quality program. It is a great
package leaving no stone unturned. He also showed his practical side by showing
us how to weld better. Andrew shared many lessons learned through-out his career
as a welder. He explains the theory while showing how to weld which is a great
method of instruction. He also gave us valuable assessment tools to mark welds.
Ultimately the course will benefit the students. It was certainly a valuable
experience and plans are already in the works for the next steps and more
training and signing up for the acorn curriculum.
Many thanks to Andrew Bartlett the technical outreach
officer for a great course.
