McCulloch Awarded Welding Certification

Cody McCulloch, a welding student and recent Fulton County Area Vocational- Technical graduate, has been awarded the American Welding Society (AWS) certification in the horizontal position using spray transfer. This certifies McCulloch in the horizontal and flat welding positions.

He is the first AVTS student to have been tested and awarded an AWS certification. Additionally, due to Mc- Culloch’s advanced placement score in the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI) written and performance tests, he has qualified for the articulation agreement with Penn College where he is enrolled in the Heavy Duty Diesel Technology program this fall. At the AVTS awards ceremony, Dressel Welding awarded McCulloch with an auto-darkening helmet, a leather welding jacket and a pair of welding gloves for his outstanding achievements this school year.

Elisa Ramsey is the welding instructor at the Fulton County AVTS.
