Duke Energy continues support of PCC’s welding program with $20,000 grant to fund simulators

PCC's goal is to increase the number of students with welding certifications. The simulator equipment is effective for use with beginner and intermediate welding students and allows students to practice multiple welds without burning through consumable supplies. The equipment is highly suggested by welding instructors due to its cost effectiveness; students can practice welds multiple times and make mistakes until they can correctly bead the weld because they are not consuming costly supplies.
