Kevin Soley is a journeyman and Red Seal welder who has been in the welding trade for 26 years. He started his welding apprenticeship at Red Deer College in 1992 and received his Journeyman and Red Seal Status in 1994. Next, he passed his Alberta B- Pressure test and successfully ran his own welding business for 25 years. After acquiring his Red Seal Certification, he has had the privilege of welding all across western Canada.
In 2013, Kevin started a different journey as an instructor in the welding trade. He was fortunate enough to receive an award as “Southern Alberta’s Top Trades Instructor” in 2014. This nomination came from students he had taught over the years. He feels that his success in the teaching field comes from understanding students and being able to present the information in a way that students will understand. He learns as much from his students as he teaches them. He is a tradesperson, just like his students, but with a little more knowledge of the trade.
Personally, his hobbies include being an avid marathon and ultra-marathon runner, as well as hiking the mountains of this awesome country.
