WSC’s Delorme Earns Welding Certifications

When Tim Delorme set out to become a Certified Welding Inspector and Certified Welding Educator, he knew it would take time and effort.

“I took a 60-hour online course,” said the Williston State College welding instructor. “Then I travelled to Minneapolis to attend a 40-hour seminar.”

The seminar started at noon on March 26 and ended on April 1.   As part of the online course, Delorme took a variety of classes, including fabrication math, metallurgy, and welding safety, to prepare himself for the three-part certification exam. The exam, which took place in Minneapolis, featured over 250 questions and required Delorme to demonstrate practical knowledge, as well as answer written questions about welding fundamentals and the welding codes.
