Congratulations to the 36 graduates who are graduating today from Workshops for Warriors. The graduates have participated in a 16 week semester which offers them credentials from top industry organizations such as the National Institute for Metalworking Skills, Mastercam University, SOLIDWORKS and American Welding Society.
Founded in 2008, WFW offers classes in Advanced CNC Manufacturing, CAD/CAM programming, advanced welding/fabrication, and machinery repair.
