MOULTRIE — Students in Colquitt County High School’s metals technology program recently experienced virtual welding with a Lincoln Electric Virtual Welding Machine. Owned by the Tulsa Welding School in Jacksonville, Fla., the machine measures the student’s ability to stay within specific parameters needed to perform a quality weld, according to a press release from CCHS. Using this type of training, an instructor can tell if a student is ready to move on to the welding booth to begin live welding. It is an ideal piece of equipment to train students on, the CCHS release said, but it is a costly one. The cost of the machine is $70,000 and the helmet $10,000. Jacob Flanagan, Tulsa Welding representative, taught the class. Instructor of the Colquitt County High metals program is Tim Hobbs.
