There's Mott CC...I would imagine any community college you go to would have at least one. I took the beginning one at OCC...ARC/MIG/TIG/GAS

Thanks. I know that LCC has welding classes, but I didn't know if they offer any at the Livingston campus. I just checked Mott and they do offer some welding classes.

I imagine WCC is way better since they "removed" the person running the program.

......? figg was a jack ass and a womanizer. any chick that walked into that classroom w a decent set of tubes got an A. I am suprized he was there as long as he was. Fcukin creep. Sure he knows his stuff and kept a world class facility (proof by the numerous honors and international awards so many of his former students and himself have acheived),but there is certain degree of professionalism (that should be expected from any college head) that was not displayed. Atleast not in the 3 years i spent in and out of his shop. Its still an excellent shop reguardless, known the world around. Figg was just one guy, there are still plenty of world class instructors in that facility. So please, do not start with more of your ignorance.

More of my ignorance? I didn't even elaborate on shit and you knew exactly what I was talking about. So, you can go fukc yourself.

I have a 3.9 at WCC out of 40 credits. I would have a 4.0 if it weren't for that stupid bitch. I had all the points, all the attendance and all my shit done extremely well. I wasn't one of the young motherfuckers that swung from his balls all day, so bitch faggot gave me an A- arbitrarily. Why? because he suggested I come in on an off day to make up time for him fucking off. I called him out.

1. 2 hours without acetylene while he was playing grabass with the young girls and watching YouTube. He was "Busy".

2. Finals day. He's gone for the first 2.5 hours of class. My shit is done, and I have to wait around in line for him. He was "Busy", but the bitch went out to eat with one of the girls working there.

3. Nothing but girls assisting in the lab. When I ask somebody that works there for a particular item, they should know what the fukc it is. I shouldn't have to wait 45 minutes while they twirl their hair and make sure their thong is exposed.

Aside from that cockbag and his cocksuckery, I can't say anything negative about the department. Like I said, I imagine it's way better.

Absolute jibberish, but you've earned the super-rare Fatty Matty bye on spelling, grammar and punctuation for a valid point. Consider this the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you will never see again.

She (McClean) is badass. Anything I needed always came from her, since jackass was never around.

if you could do that for me that would be great. hey ya know i just assumed the "resident cock "was being his typical sarcastic prick self, so my appologies. The Fatty Matty bye on spelling? Who the hell do you think you are?

Mr. Figg has definatly made a reputation for himself. He obviously pissed off the wrong people which finally did him in. My girlfriend took acetylene 111 w me about 2 years ago. Guy followed her around the shop like a lost puppy. I wasnt havin it and basically tolf him to get lost. Dude wouldn't even shake my hand at graduation last year. Guess he has to live soly off his royalties.
