Brad Lowe has joined the Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI) at Marshall University as a technical trainer for the newly established Advanced Welding Program.

Lowe, who is based at the RCBI Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center in Huntington, will deliver training in advanced welding techniques on-site at company locations across West Virginia. This more flexible and responsive approach will enable companies that serve the automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, petrochemical, power generation and other industrial sectors to enhance the skills of both new and existing workers more quickly and cost-effectively.

The Ironton, Ohio, resident previously served as a welder for Tri-America Contractors of Wheelersburg, Ohio, and completed a five-year apprenticeship with Plumbers & Pipefitters Local Union 577.

A U.S. Army veteran, Lowe is a graduate of Ironton High School and attended the Hobart Institute of Welding Technology in Troy, Ohio. He has earned more than 50 welding certifications.
