Ohio's Columbiana County Career and Technical Center Responds to Need for Welders

November 08, 2011 2:28 PM | Ohio ACTE (Administrator)

The Salem (OH) News (11/8, Shields) reports, "A growing need for welders is significant and the Columbiana County Career and Technical Center is responding to it, according to Huck Hughes, the school's welding and fabricating instructor." CCCTC "currently has 23 juniors, 23 seniors and 30 adult education welding students and turns away 15 to 20 people a year in the high school program. Juniors and seniors are in class for 2.5 hours a day with juniors receiving entry-level welding certification, seniors receiving advanced-level (pipe welding) certification while many return for a third year at the 'expert level,'" according to Hughes. "The school has already sent students into local industry like MAC Trailer, which donated an aluminum MIG welder to the school; Butech Bliss, Hickey Metal Fabrication and Dearing Compressor in Youngstown."
