So You're the New Welding Engineer
AWS
Nov. 11-12, 2014
Atlanta
FABTECH Show — Georgia World Congress Center — Room C302

How to get "up to speed" quickly, how to ask the right questions, how to get the results you need, save money, and stay out of trouble! This two-day conference is for managers, engineers, designers, and others with welding responsibility but limited exposure to or background in welding. The conference focuses on arc welding applications, but the principles have universal applicability. Presentations and discussion are based on the "Application Analysis Worksheet," which was developed to teach a senior college course to engineers about to enter industry, with the objective of helping them develop a path to understand and deal with the challenges they were about to face.

For shipbuilders, finding talent for open jobs isn't easy
The Virginian-Pilot
Carole Bowen is a 67-year-old great-grandmother — and a first-rate welder with nearly 40 years of experience. All but a few of those years have been spent at the Norfolk, Virginia, shipyard now owned by BAE Systems, whose sprawling complex just south of the Berkley Bridge forms part of the city’s waterfront, a vista of drydocked warships and towering cranes. Yet within the next year or so, Bowen plans to retire, part of a seismic shift in the region's shipbuilding and ship-repair industry that, by the end of the decade, will have subtracted 18,000 skilled workers, an upheaval that local shipyard managers have mobilized to address.
