EP 22: Welding and Virtual Reality Technology Meet at Tulsa Welding School
Show Notes

It may not be a surprise to know the oil and gas industries are major employers for students of the Tulsa Welding School, but what about wind and solar companies and SpaceX? 

We really loved hearing these stories from Chris Schuler of Tulsa Welding School and how his love of video games aided in the implementation of a new virtual reality simulator program.

If you're ever in the Tulsa area it's got a great music scene, fantastic places to eat and you may even see Chris tailgating at an Oklahoma State game or watching the Tulsa Oilers play hockey!

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Chris Schuler’s backstory and how he came to be a welding instructor at Tulsa Welding School
  • What inspired Chris to pursue a welding career
  • What sort of companies are hiring Tulsa Welding students?
  • How Chris’s love of video games helped shape their welding trainers, using virtual reality technology
