Jason Karamol is a new addition to MCCC’s welding program.
“We have a lot of fun. We get to play with electricety and fire,” Karamol said.
Karamol teaches Welding 115 – Accelerated Welding, a five-hour long class from Monday to Friday.
“There are eight styles of welding. I teach all eight of them, and how to use the torches,” said Karamol.
This is Karamol’s second semester teaching at MCCC. He started in the 2011 summer semester, but has has been teaching since 2008.
“It’s a pretty intense class” Karamol said, adding that the students have to deal with a lot of information in a short amount of time.
Upon completing the program, students recieve QC10 certification, qualifying them for entry level welding jobs.
“It’s definitely a foot in the door for a job,” Karamol said. “If you like to work with your hands, this is definitely the class to be in.”
