David Hoffman
Member, American Welding Society
Certified Welding Inspector
Certified CRAW Technician
Fox Valley Technical College

An accomplished welder with thousands of hours of hands-on experience, Dave Hoffman has been teaching welding and fabrication for more than 25 years. He assisted with the development of an Associate Degree program in Automated Manufacturing at Fox Valley Technical College and developed an Associate Degree program for Welding Technology. He also received a state grant to re-develop the Metal Fabrication/Welding Diploma program for which he wrote program requirements, competencies, and the complete curriculum.

After completing development of the Associate Degrees in Welding Technology, Dave tested and passed the requirements to become an AWS CWI and CWE. Shortly after, he got involved with AWS and was on the B5E Committee helping to write the B5.5: 2000, Specification for the Qualification of Welding Educators. Most of the welder certifications in that standard were already certified, however some were not. Dave welded GMAW-S vertical up and overhead plates to certify the welding procedure used in the standard.

A past winner of the prestigious Lincoln Award, Dave holds a B.S. in Industrial Education and an M.S. in Technical Education from the University of Wisconsin - Stout.
