Why did you choose to take the course you did?

I learned welding in our family business by fabricating and installing window grills, then I applied as a helper in a company that manufactures beams for construction in 1999 – 2002. An opportunity came when I was trained and tested in plate welding. Luckily, I passed the test.  A certificate was issued by the company, although that only proved that I’m a welder. I was still not certified By TESDA. Years past and I worked in different companies until I got employed here in Kuwait where I’m still currently working using the certificate given by the said company. I learned GMAW & SMAW at the other companies I worked in.
