Welding 201

$315

with Dan Ferden, RSU 24 Adult Education

Calendar Apr 24, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 8 weeks

Newly designed for those who have successfully completed our introductory Welding course and would like to further their skills. We focus primarily on Stick and T.I.G. welding in all positions and cover topics such as the strengths of materials, how heat affects these and the best ways to properly prepare your materials. This will be a fairly fast paced and demanding course with the understanding that it can prepare students who are interested in pursuing a career or formal education in welding, as well as provide the skills for one to confidently tackle their own fabrication projects. Students need to wear long pants, long-sleeved shirt and work shoes.

Prerequisites: Intro to Welding within the past 3 years or prior experience with instructor's permission.

Welding for Women

$265

Our introductory class covers the basics and is for the do-it-yourself welder.

Safety is a priority and students are instructed in safety procedures. This course does not offer a certification in welding; however, it may be valuable in deciding which welding operation you like best or in purchasing a welder that works for you. All welding equipment and supplies are provided. Class size is limited to 5. Students need to wear long pants, long-sleeved shirt and work shoes. No class 4/16.

Winter Rambles for Seniors and Other Free Spirits

$5

with Sam Horine, RSU 54/MSAD 54 Adult and Community Education

Calendar Jan 15, 2019 at 4:30 pm

"It's a great art to saunter!" Henry David Thoreau, 1817-1862 American poet, essagyist, and naturalist

Walking is a good exercise, it promotes good converstations with fellow walkers and the opportunity to observe one's surroundings. so , for those with some free time, I'm organizing a couple of 'rambles' a month – starting in October and ending in March. Most 'rambles' will be in rural areas with a few, in urban settings.

All will be within a 40 miles radius of Skowhegan.

• January 'ramble' will embrace the cold - and maybe stop along the way for a hot bowl of soup.

• February 'ramble' will bring out the snowshoes.

• March 'ramble' hwill begin to say goodbye to winter and look for signs of spring.

While most 'rambles' will take place in the afternoon, some will start earlier in the day. At times , we may want to car pool to a starting point.

Good walking shoes, warm comfortable clothing, and the yen to explore are the only essential elements needed.

We will meet every 1st and 3rd Tuesday starting January 15!
