Dustin Gusso, Life After RTEC

We sat down with Dustin Gusso, a recent Certified Welder through RTEC, to ask him about his work at Kolberg Pioneer Inc.

When we asked him what he would say to students thinking about taking a class through RTEC, he said, "I took both the RTEC Basic and Skill Upgrade Welding Classes to become and AWS Certified Welder and this training prepared me for what I am doing at KPI. The cost of the training is super affordable! Bob Olson and John Darcy are great instructors and they know what they are doing. They prepared me for a career in manufacturing."

When asked his advice for incoming students, he recommended, " RTEC can help students connect to jobs with local manufacturers. They bring the employers to you. I would recommend this training because you can learn a lot and earn a decent living wage when you are done."

RTEC would like to thank Dustin for taking the time to sit down and talk with us. We wish him the best in whatever his future holds.
