As most members of the Gases and Welding Distributors Association know, the association offers a variety of training options. However, not every member realizes the breadth of the association’s offerings. That’s why, as a part of its continued effort to keep young executives in the gases and welding industry abreast of the training options available to them. The article, entitled “Spring Training For Young Executives,” highlights three of the association’s most helpful training options. It also gives young professionals advice on how to maximize the benefits of these opportunities.

The opportunities discussed include the following:

GAWDA Live Events
If you aren’t a regular visitor to www.gawda.org, you might not realize it, but every few weeks GAWDA is involved in some sort of live event. Whether it’s a regional meeting, trade show, management conference or even GAWDA’s convention, these live events offer training and networking opportunities in spades.

Safety Organizer
In this industry, safety rules and regulations are paramount. Unfortunately, they’re also ever-changing. Fortunately for GAWDA members, each month the association provides its Safety Organizer. This downloadable newsletter features the latest rules and updates from the world of gases and welding safety.

Be it daily, semi-monthly, monthly or quarterly, the GAWDA publications are constantly producing information that will keep you up to date with the latest and greatest in the gases and welding industry.
