Program Spotlight

WELDING NEWS The Bill J. Priest (BJP) Workforce Training Department is very proud to announce that they have earned the prestigious designation of an Accredited Testing Facility (ATF) through the American Welding Society (AWS). This will allow BJP the ability to offer Welding certifications to students as well as meet the certification needs of business and industries that are served by the Institution.

Until now, San Antonio and McAllen have been the only other areas to offer this service, leaving North Texas industry traveling long distances to gain certifications.

Byron Zarrabi, the director of Welding, states, “This is an important and exciting accomplishment for the Welding program, Bill J. Priest, the Dallas County Community College District, and local industries. Bill J. Priest is also proud to announce that they have a Certified Welding Inspector (CWI), Pooya Koohbanani, on staff with plans for having all instructors obtain CWI certification.”
