The Nebraska Welding Career Development Event is designed to promote and create an interest in welding by providing opportunities for recognition through evaluation of the contestants’ manipulative skills and general knowledge. These skills and knowledge correlate to the students preparation for employment in the broad field of welding, including agricultural and industrial welding. AFNR courses that may align to Welding include: Power, Structure, & Technical Systems, Metals & Fabrication, Basic Welding, Advanced Welding, Agriculture Mechanics, and others.


Room change for the Welding CDE: Room S-1 will be the room to report to this year for registration check-in and orientation. This auditorium type room is located close to the North parking lot and contestants and advisors can enter the North side doors. Parking in the North lot will be the easiest access; 15 passenger vans and other smaller vehicles can park in this lot at all times. Full size buses that wish to remain on campus will need to drop the students off in the North lot then park in the overflow lot next to the “O” street entrance. It is a gravel lot marked as "Overflow Parking" and is located just to the right of the “O” street entrance. Full size buses are not permitted to park in any of the regular concrete lots.
