April Featured Apprentice: Joshua Garwood

Name: Joshua Garwood

Trade: Welder/Pipefitter/Plumber

Year: 2nd year

Hobbies off the jobsite: welding, wrenching on cars, cooking, camping, hiking, hunting, and fishing

What I like about my apprenticeship: I love getting paid to learn about what I love to do. If you love what you do you never work a day in your life.

A tip I've learned on the job: Just listen for the sizzling bacon sound when you're welding. Keep it in nice and close.

Go-to tool in my tool bag: my tape measure, crescent wrench, and torpedo level

Resources I utilize outside of the classroom to learn more about my trade: I watch some welding videos on YouTube from time to time and have my own setup at the house I practice with and do home projects with.
