Enbridge master welders provide demonstration at Kish College

Master welders from [DCEDC member] Enbridge, Inc. provided a hands-on demonstration for students in Kishwaukee College’s Welding Technology program Tuesday at the College.

In Kish’s newly renovated welding lab, Dan Morang, Enbridge Senior Welder, and David Losiniecki, Enbridge Senior Equipment Operator, showcased different welding techniques while fielding questions about the profession from the Kish welding students.

“We are here to help. We are here to instruct. We are here to get you information you might not have yet so we can help you get out in the welding field and get good-paying jobs,” Morang said.

Kish students expressed appreciation for the Enbridge welders who offered their time and expertise to help them learn about the welding profession.

“This was an exciting opportunity. These professionals are what we are training to be. To have people in the industry sharing their experiences with us is fantastic. If you want to know how to do something, you go and ask the professionals who are doing it,” said John Rinkenberger, a Kish welding student.

Enbridge is a longtime partner of the College and the Kishwaukee College Foundation. Along with regularly providing professional demonstrations, Enbridge supports Kish’s programs with financial and equipment donations. Every semester, the Enbridge Pipeline Industry Awareness Scholarship provides scholarship support to students studying engineering or welding-related programs.
