José, a 12th grade welding student at Max Hayes Career Technical High School, is qualified for an internship.
Jose loves welding!
In 9th grade he was instantly hooked by the arc discharged by the electric current, and was excited that he could create metal projects from scratch. In his third year of welding, Jose is on his way to earning AWS certifications in MIG, TIG, and Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW).
"I would like to get hands on experience and see the welding process in the field," said José, who thinks welding is a good career option after he completes high school.
