DATE On March 25, 2021

Encouragement goes a long way. Although it's important to be a self-starter, having teammates who help you develop is crucial as well. Dave attributes his success in the welding field to coworkers who showed him how to progress in his career. 

Dave's work history speaks for itself. With over 25 years of experience in the welding/fabrication and construction industries, he never stops striving to improve. He has held many positions in the welding industry including production welder, project manager, and foreman. Dave holds multiple welding certifications and is OSHA certified in safe work practices. Additionally, Dave has over 8 years of experience as a journeyman roofer.

Today, Dave is the program chair for Rockford Career College's welding diploma program. By passing down the knowledge and skills he's gained over the years, he hopes to prepare the next generation of welders for any challenges they may face. Other welders' support meant the world to Dave, and he wants to encourage his students in the same way.

Since our instructors have worked in their field for years, their teachings incorporate real-life examples, making it easier to apply your new knowledge in the real-world setting.
