Mike Washburn

My name is Mike Washburn and I am one of the welding instructors.  This is my third year at BPSTIL and look forward to another successful year.

There are three generations of welders in my family.  I followed in my father’s footsteps as a welder and my son has done the same.  I have over 35 years’ experience in welding and sheet metal fabrication.  I was able to accomplish, with my wife, the opening of my own business over 18 years ago. As my business continues to grow, I see the need for experienced welders and fabricators.

I have helped several students with senior projects in this area and found the reward of sharing my knowledge of my trade was overwhelmingly satisfying.  The potential for employment in this trade is increasing at a high rate and am excited to be a part of students learning this trade.

I look forward to sharing my experience, skills, and knowledge with the students, with a goal of inspiring their interest in this career choice.
