Hosted by instructor and welding advisor Sebastian Max Ceron, and aptly titled Make Metal with Max, it promises to be an engaging alternative to in-class instruction with visuals, lecture-style lessons and feedback and discussion after class.

This partnership is allowing Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the CWB Group to reach a wide array of audiences that are looking to grow their welding careers. 

 “I think that there’s a big gap out there in terms of online learning resources,” said Max Ceron. “Most of the online content is fairly flat and not diverse or dynamic, and with this project I’m trying to create something that people can use. Instructors can now tell their students that they have access to videos made in Canada by a Canadian college using Canadian content, which is hard to find.” 

 This program gives students flexibility to combine work with their education and they’re able to review and go over the information as many times as required, without time restrictions.
