Funding Available for Welding Certificate Training at JWCC
Individuals interested in a welding career who lack the skills for advertised job postings may be able to qualify for funding to pay for training at John Wood Community College. Additional welding classes are being added to the spring class schedule to meet the increased demand for welders in the area. Classes start January 13.
The welding certificate is eligible for financial aid and additional funding may be available through Two Rivers Regional office for low income or recently laid off individuals. Those who qualify can receive short-term welding training and have a certificate in as few as 16 weeks.
“This is a great opportunity for individuals who may have recently lost their jobs or are losing their emergency unemployment benefits,” Pam Foust, JWCC dean of career and technology said. “The welding certificate program at John Wood is excellent and meets the demands of area manufacturers. Additional training beyond this short-term offering can help students quickly move up the ladder with many companies.”
Individuals are encouraged to contact David Hetzler, 217.641.4953 or email@example.com.
