Eleven local high school students from the Clare-Gladwin Career Center’s Welding program completed the first level of the Schools Excelling through National Skills Education (SENSE) Program at the conclusion of the 2014-2015 school year. An award-winning program offered by the American Welding Society, the SENSE Program provides administrative standards and curriculum guidelines for the qualification of entry-level, advanced, and expert welders in high schools and colleges.
According to Clare-Gladwin Career Center Counselor Margie Dill, “When the students complete this first level of the SENSE Program, they receive a certificate that verifies they have met the qualifications for an entry-level position in welding.”
Welding is a career and technical education (CTE) program offered to high school juniors and seniors in Clare and Gladwin counties by the Clare-Gladwin Career Center of Clare-Gladwin RESD. Students spend half of their day at their CTE program and the other half at their home high school.
Congratulations to the following students who completed Level 1 of the SENSE Program:
