St. Charles Community College welding instructors Steve Schuetz and Mike Kamp received awards for excellence from the American Welding Society (AWS) at their recent annual meeting, according to a press release.

Schuetz received the St. Louis chapter’s Certified Welding Inspector of the Year award.

This award is given to a welding instructor who, through professional activity and civic activities, is considered to have enhanced public awareness and opinion of both the American Welding Society and the Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) program or otherwise made an outstanding contribution to the science of welding inspection. From these exemplary activities, the member has made outstanding contributions to the enhancement of the art and science of welding.

Kamp received the District Instructor Award in recognition of quality instructional performance devoted to the promotion and expansion of welding skills and knowledge for SCC students.

SCC has several welding programs including the American Welding Society Certificate, Basic Welding Certificate of Specialization, Advanced Welding Certificate of Specialization, Entry Level Welding Certificate of Achievement and Welding Associate of Applied Science.

SCC recently added welding classes to its credit course offerings to meet the demand from local employers seeking skilled workers. Instructors for SCC’s welding program teach welding skills to AWS standards, offering students the opportunity to earn an industry-recognized credential, a valuable tool when seeking employment.

Upon completion of SCC welding programs, job placement is simplified, as SCC has 20 manufacturing partners who are ready to hire.
