Those looking for a new career with some job training to go with it were able to take a look at the latest technology in welding.
The First Institute Mobile Welding Lab was in downtown Rockford and open for public tours.
The Crystal Lake company says the lab provides accelerated training in manufacturing.
The public was invited to visit the mobile lab.
"We not only train individuals, but we actually also train companies that need to upgrade their skills through welding," says Kurt Beier of First Institute Training and Management.
