Welding + MooreCo's Thrive Philosophy

How do welding courses meet the developmental needs of CTE students?

Welding is a highly sought-after talent in the job market. CTE students learn precision, attention to detail, and problem-solving, all of which are transferable skills essential for success in any field. Welding courses instill a strong work ethic, as students must focus on safety, teamwork, and discipline to master this craft.

The ability to work with a variety of materials and tools in a structured environment helps students build resilience and adaptability. Students work individually to gain a strong sense of self-reliance, but they also build strong community by encouraging, motivating, and learning from each other.

How does MooreCo outfit a welding classroom that meets the developmental needs of students?

MooreCo products are quality-tested to withstand the heavy work in a welding classroom. Safety is the primary concern and furnishings need to be sturdy and reliable. An emphasis on mobility and flexibility means projects are not limited due to lack of space. MooreCo products adjust to the needs of an active welding classroom.

The Compass Single Cabinet Teacher Workstation has locking storage to keep dangerous welding materials secure. The solid wood butcher block top is not only attractive, but it also handles wear and tear and is a more forgiving work surface.

Keep materials organized and accessible with fully customizable Compass Cabinets. Create additional workspace by adding a durable butcher block top and secure valuable welding equipment with sturdy locking doors.

Akt Tables provide ample space for projects and materials. At standing-height, students can freely and quickly move to work. Welding students need to stay alert and active for safety reasons. Standing has been proven to increase circulation, keep energy flowing, and improve focus. 

With Akt 5-Star Stools, students can give their feet and back a break. They can easily move forward, backwards, tilt, slide to find the ideal body angle needed for physical daunting work.
