ROCKLIN, CA -- On April 27 at Weld Expo '13, the new Sierra College Mobile Welding Training Center will be unveiled at 10 a.m. The Miller Road Show and over 20 welding industry partners will provide demonstrations from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Rocklin campus. Parking and admission is free.
The American Welding Society Sierra College Student Chapter is hosting this event for families, students, welders and community members. Attendees can experience metal working from blacksmithing to state-of-the-art welding technology being used in construction and fabrication to rebuild America. In addition to seeing the latest in welding technology and tools of the trade, visitors can try live and virtual welding.
The Miller Welding Road Show Truck and Lincoln Electric MDU Truck will offer demonstrations and show tools and supplies. The event also includes representatives from Airgas, Gerlinger, Harris Industrial Gasses, Klingspor, Thermadyne and Del Paso Pipe and Steel.

Attendees will be among the first to check out the new Sierra College Mobile Welding Training Center that will train the next generation welders. This mobile welding training center was funded by the Sierra College Center for Applied Competitive Technologies (CACT - www.sierracollegetraining.com) and Career Technical Education Perkins funding. The lab will travel to Sierra College campuses in Grass Valley and Truckee to give those students needed skills.
This is the only community college Mobile Training Center for welding in Northern California and one of a handful in the United States, explained Bill Wenzel, Welding Department Chair. "With the new technology in the mobile lab, students' speed of travel, amperage and voltage will be tracked and graphed as they weld, giving them detailed feedback to improve their technique," said Wenzel. "Combining computers with welding technology will give Sierra College students an advantage in securing the skills needed for employment."
The mobile training center will also visit high schools explained Carol Pepper-Kittredge, CACT Director. "Sierra College works in partnership with high school welding teachers," said Pepper-Kittredge. "This lab will bring new equipment and tools into the hands of high school students. It will make them aware of Sierra College's certificate and degree programs as well as career opportunities in welding, fabrication and advanced manufacturing."
The mobile training center can also benefit employers explained Scott Berry, Welding Program Specialist. "The Sierra College Mobile Welding Training Center has the potential of providing specialized industry training using cutting edge technology to our local companies," said Berry.
