Expanding Job Opportunities for Ironworkers and their Contractors

Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

Dogs certified as welders lead to new bill campaign


In a bizarre turn of events, documents officially certified pooches Robert Dash and Henry Wolfe as structural welders, as the American Welding Standards was found to not be strict enough with its guidelines.

Although welders wanting certification are meant to demonstrate their skills in person and show some photo ID, it seems groups testing the system were able to bypass this.

According to Bill Woodward - the Iron Workers of Southern Ohio and Vicinity District President - another dog called Adam Barker and a dead person were also granted certification.

Kentucky House Bill 239 looks to make the guidelines law rather than a suggestion.
