STC Welding Receives Nationally Recognized Certification

July 22, 2013 - Instructors in Southeastern Technical College’s welding program recently finished testing that will certify STC as an Accredited Training Facility with the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER), opening doors across the nation and beyond for welding graduates.

Instructors Michael Crumpler, from the Vidalia campus, and Chris Cumbee, from the Swainsboro campus, completed the requirements to begin teaching new curriculum that will allow graduates of the program even more opportunities.

“The new curriculum presents many new challenges as well as opportunities for us, but Chris and I strongly feel the NCCER curriculum will increase the integrity of our welding programs and will ultimately be most beneficial to our students,” said Crumpler.

NCCER certification is a widely-recognized standard, and workers who hold an NCCER card can find interested employers in contractors like CB&I, Cianbro, The Industrial Company and Robins & Morton (R&M). NCCER is recognized outside of the US, as well, so opportunities exist abroad.

Southeastern Tech’s partner in this endeavor is the aforementioned R&M, one of the top contractors in the United States. In May, the company sent two STC students to a national craft competition. R&M is also building the CARBO Ceramics plant in Millen, which has hired several STC graduates. Now, the relationship between the contractor and the college becomes even stronger.

“This is the first time in the 65-year history of R&M that they have ever had an Accredited Training Facility, and we are the first technical college in the state of Georgia to have an industry Accredited Training Sponsor,” said Crumpler.

Crumpler and Cumbee will both begin teaching NCCER curriculum this fall in their classes on both the Swainsboro and Vidalia campuses.

Michael Crumpler and Chris Cumbee receive their NCCER certification in the Vidalia campus welding lab on July 10.
