Today's educational welding lab
• 8 – welding booths per school on average
• 22 – average number of students/class
• 33% – students with cognitive disabilities
 Classroom management is an issue
 Instructors are trained as CTE educators, not
always in the specific disciplines (like welding)
 There may be little to no instructional materials
available
