RPG is the primary industry partner for a new tax exempt venture, Valor Into Purpose, Inc., a brand new specialty welding training program based in Pinehurst, NC near Ft. Bragg, with satellite locations in Virginia near the Naval and Army bases of Hampton Roads, Va. The first semester is planned for Spring 2018 in Virginia.
Valor Into Purpose is designed to train, certify and assist in the employment of certified welders for the power and petrochemical industries by assisting veterans in re-training for a new career as they transition out of the military. Valor is also open to for applicants from the community at large. RPG has the commitment from several of our customers and from the armed services to partner with us in various levels of support for this effort.
The future curriculum offerings include:
- Welding, both manual and orbital
- AWS certifications in SMAW, GMAW, GTAW and FCAW.
