Someone that started work with me at the same time (caterpillar inc.) has been welding for almost 10 years. He recently got called in for having poor quality on his welds, meanwhile; I am getting complimented on my welds by the floor manager and supervisor. Ive only been welding for 6 months! CDA MWP is where it's at!!!!

I just wanted to touch base with you and update you on my employment. I just got hired on with Mainstream Commercial Divers out of Kentucky for a 6-8 week job, with the possibility of becoming a permanent employee after this project. I am also on the work rotation for EMC Divers in New Smyrna Beach, FL. and will be doing freelance work for them as my schedule permits. Thank you for all the advice you gave us while we were there. I found myself thinking back to things you said and going over the notes I took during your classes many times during my job search, and I'm confidant that it played a factor in me finding a job. I know a lot of guys goof off in classes and don't pay attention, but I know I sincerely appreciated everything you taught us and found it immensely helpful.

I was lucky enough to find work only 4 days after graduating and am now employed with Solomon Diving in Monroe, Michigan. I have been talking with some of my co-workers who are also just getting out of dives schools else where and I am surprised to find how far ahead of the game I am compared to them. CDA gave me more hands on experiences, more bottom time, the use of a broader variety of tools/components and most of all, a better idea of what employers expect from you. I couldn't be happier with how things are going and it is all because of my decision to attend CDA.

Just an encouraging word here...I graduated march 1, 2013. I drove to Louisiana march 3. March 4th I had a job at Epic, and march 8 I started work. There's plenty of jobs, if you come prepared, and talk about how awesome safety is. Do whatever Len Wade tells you. Having copies of certs will be a game changer. I saw it happen. Good luck everyone!
