More resources make for better welding education, and the AWS Classroom gives you and your students direct access to cutting-edge welding training materials supported by a wealth of industry expertise. The American Welding Society believes in investing in education and creating a better learning environment. That’s why, starting this month, AWS is giving learning institutions the chance to win the AWS Classroom Experience for their students. Starting now through June, welding instructors and school administrators can sign their schools up to be the winner of one of three great prizes:

1st Place Classroom Wins:

  • 25 AWS Online Education Library Licenses
  • 1 Year AWS Academic Access
  • 1 Year Education Institution Membership (for the School)
  • 25 Student Memberships
  • 25 Samsung Galaxy Tablets

2nd Place Classroom Wins:

  • 25 AWS Online Education Library Licenses
  • 1 Year AWS Academic Access
  • 25 Student Memberships

3rd Place Classroom Wins:

  • 25 Student Memberships

The AWS Classroom Experience is a combination of two key training resources developed by AWS Learning and welding industry experts – The AWS Online Education Library and AWS Academic Access. The AWS Online Educational Library is designed to fit the needs of today’s welding students and instructors. Built by AWS subject-matter experts and learning professionals, it consists of online courses that feature engaging multimedia content aimed at stimulating learning and long-term retention.

Brief modules, learner-centered navigation, and 24/7 access allow time-strapped students to learn at their own pace from laptops, phones, and tablets at any time and any place. Equally busy instructors can use the AWS Learning Management system to assign tasks and track student progress. And if you’re one of our contest winners, you may be accessing these resources on a brand new Samsung Galaxy tablet!

AWS Academic Access is the complete AWS Standards Reference Library in digital form. With AWS Academic Access, every student can reference real-world welding requirements. Specifically designed for schools teaching welding, AWS Academic Access makes over 230 codes, specifications, standards and guidelines accessible to your school. As AWS standards are revised, the AWS Academic Library is automatically updated so that you always have access to the most up-to-date information.

Last, but not least, a membership grants you access to our award-winning, monthly journal. The Welding Journal consists of publications that will keep you informed of industry and technological changes that are affecting the field. With The Welding Journal, you won’t have to worry about getting left behind.

To enter your classroom, all you have to do is register through the contest’s online portal by June 30, 2016 at 11:59PM EST. The winning schools will be drawn at AWS headquarters in Miami, Florida during the AWS Instructor’s Institute meeting in July, a training event that gives instructors the opportunity to strengthen their teaching skills, learn about AWS programs, and experience hands-on learning techniques. Don’t miss out on your chance to experience all that the AWS Classroom has to offer: enter your class now!
