Greene Technology Center Welding Program
For Returning Students
1) If you have not completed OSHA 10 training and certification at the start of a semester, it will be required before going to the shop. This will be computer based and done in the classroom or you can work on it at home but understand this. YOU WILL NOT GO IN THE SHOP UNTIL IT IS DONE.
You will have two weeks allowed for completing the OSHA 10 course. During that time you will be in the classroom working online.
For those of you that like to sit in the classroom, please do NOT SIGN UP for my class and waste my time or the time of others. For those of you that think you only go to the shop, the same goes for you!
2) Classes will have assignments that are on a computer. If a computer is NOT provided by your home school, you need to let me know at the start of the semester.
There will also be book work, classroom time etc. If this is something you just cannot bear in your life, feel free to use your credits in something a little easier on your "feelings".
There are a few of you during your 1st semester and other semesters that appear to have placed little value in something I considered valuable which is theory work associated with welding. It has been noted.
3) Since the advanced class in the afternoon is sometimes full, I may have the opportunity to provide input related to who is in the class. Should it come to the point where I have to reduce my class size the 1st few weeks of a semester, understand that one of the prime considerations will be how much effort I had to put into trying to get you to work on classroom work or in the shop in the past and how you interact with others.
4) I have mentioned to some of you in the past that you should consider taking something else. If you walk around the shop, don't stay in your booth, goof off, horseplay, and are not serious about learning to weld, DO NOT COME BACK TO MY CLASS!
