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.
