So, awhile back my buddies Brandon Parrot and Peyton Evans of Sum Dum Welder Apparel told me I should reach out to their former welding instructor Scottie Smith. Scottie is a Navy Veteran Welder and Second Generation Welding Instructor. His father was his Welding Instructor back in the day and Scottie learned a lot from him on how to train welders and prepare them for the workforce. Scottie has also written a book entitled “ How I Teach Welding” and it’s available right now on Amazon. Today we talk about his welding journey and some of the similarities and differences in our teaching strategies. This is a great episode for new welding instructors, or anyone currently looking to add some new things to their current program.
