Education minister Diallo Rabain visited the Bermuda College to meet welders taking their practical test for national certification.

Welders, electricians, automotive service technicians and landscapers are required to be nationally certified, meaning they must demonstrate their competency and skill to evaluators.

The practical testing was led by David Lundberg of the Canadian Welding Bureau and Jibreel Talbot, chairman of the National Training Board’s Welder Occupational Advisory Committee and owner of Perfect Pass Welding and Diving Services.

The Department of Workforce Development will continue to receive applications and waive the registration fee until the end of this month.

Certification and recertification for electricians will begin December 11.

For more information or to register for national certification, contact the Department of Workforce Development at 292-3700 or visit www.dwd.bm.
