PCC Welding students benefit from Duke Energy Foundation grant

The $45,000 Duke Energy Foundation grant will fund two welding simulators that use virtual reality for training, making learning on state-of-the-art equipment possible for PCC students. This new equipment will not only properly train and develop stronger candidates, but will also reduce waste and supply needs as the simulators do not require tangible, one-time use materials.
