I learned how to weld when I was 14 in high school. I learned every process I could. When I was 17 I moved to Alaska for my first welding job repairing aluminum diesel tankers, water tankers, airplanes and boats. After I graduated high school I moved back to Oregon to run the shop for a development company in Salem and help weld and fabricate rally cars. After a couple of years I moved to Portland to work for Gunderson building rail cars. In the 8 years I worked for Gunderson I passed all of their welding tests to become a step 10 "A" welder, safety mentor and a team lead. I built and designed fixtures and safety devices. I also taught many men and woman how to weld while I was there. Most of them English was their second language. While I was at Gunderson I started doing commissioned fabrication and art which I turned in to my full time business, FORM, in November 2018.

Had a great class and learned a lot. Great info and hands on instruction. Will likely take again after getting set up with a welder at home.
