Twelve youth from the High Level area celebrated their completion of the Mind over Metal Welding Camp at a luncheon and ceremony on Friday, August 17. Northern Lakes College (NLC), in partnership with the CWB Welding Foundation and Stelco, hosted the camp from August 13 – 17 at the NLC Campus in High Level.
Students learned the proper use of hand tools, the basics of Gas Metal Arc Welding, and safety procedures, including fire extinguisher training provided by the High Level Fire Department at the Fire Training Centre. Students completed four, take-home projects over the duration of the camp. The Mind over Metal Welding Camp was free to students, thanks to the generous sponsorship of the College’s partners, the CWB Welding Foundation and Stelco.
