The Leland Olds Station participated in the development of BSC Mobile Welding training trailer. Since its completion, LOS has utilized the trailer and instructors multiple times over the past few years. The ability to train on-site has significant advantages: travel cost savings, use of actual/real projects for training, and flexibility for participation from multiple LOS employee groups. The trailer is modern, comfortable, practical, and well-suited to provide welding training the station requires as our workforce grows and develops. LOS is committed to work with BSC in continued program development." ~Mark Thompson from Basin Electric, Leland Olds Station
