Students and Faculty at PCC were able to test drive a virtual reality Welding simulator on campus for a week.

There is an interest in potentially adding this technology to enhance the new Welding program at PCC that started up again for the Spring 2021 semester.

Area high school instructors and administration will also test and evaluate the Lincoln Electric VRtech virtual reality trainer, as well as Instructor Daryl Lucas' welding advisory committee.

Students create a virtual weld using the wand and the VR headset, and view the quality of their weld on the monitor after the weld is complete.

PCC Student Luis Rodriguez (shown) enjoyed practicing with the simulator as he studies towards his first experience towards real-life welding.

PCC offers Level I and Level II Certifications and a degree path for Welding.
