The new SENSE 2.0 program prepares students better and faster

As the leader for welding education and training, the American Welding Society (AWS) designed SENSE (Schools Excelling through National Skill Standards Education), the industry standard for welding education.   Through support from the National Network, AWS enhanced the SENSE online system with new features that enable schools to test students online, track their progress, produce comprehensive reports and analysis, and simplify the process of implementing SENSE in schools around the world. The new features will also create more efficiencies for students, shortening their time to graduation by: eliminating the need to process graduations once new competencies are earned; updating student competencies immediately, eliminating the 8 week processing time; and providing potential employers an online verification system that will identify the competencies that students have earned, as they earn them.
