2019-2020 Viking Victories!

AWS CertificationsJune 4, 2020

We had 6 welders test for the AWS SMAW 3G structural steel test this morning. All 6 students passed the test and have received their AWS certification. This group of young men included three 1st year welders who put in tons of lab time to gain the highly needed skill to successfully complete the test.

Each of these young men can leave LVHS with an in-demand marketable skill that will benefit them financially for a long time to come if they choose to continue in the field.
