Instructor – Mr. Daniel Millan
I discovered at an early age that I wanted a career that stimulated my natural ability to work with my hands and stimulated my mind, yet paid well. The first time I walked into a weld shop I knew I had found my career.
I attended the Welding Program at RMAVTS from 1983-1986, then served six years in the military as a welder and carpenter. After the military, I attended Welder Training and Technical Institute and graduated from their welder fitting program. I worked as a welder fitter and welding instructor for RACC for 20 years before beginning at RMCTC in 2006. Welding has provided for me and my family of three children. I also enjoy music and bike riding in the summer.
