Veteran Explorer Program

/Veteran Explorer Program

Shape values the strong leadership and motivational skill sets of our veterans. We’re excited to introduce you to the Shape Corp. Vet Explorer, a ten-week program that introduces veterans to roll forming and welding. Each introductory session is four weeks long, followed by formalized training that the individual wants to pursue in one of the two areas. Once formal training in either roll forming or welding is completed, they will be placed on a career path within that department. Below is the breakdown of the program.

–          Week 1 – Manufacturing Tech Orientation/Training

–          Weeks 2-4 – Roll forming Rotation

–          Weeks 5-8 – Welding Rotation

o   At this time, the veteran will choose which formal training they would like to move forward with.

§  Roll forming training is 7 days (week 9, into week 10)

§  Welding training is 14 days (weeks 9-10)
