Welding Class Offered for Adults at STCTC

web posted February 8, 2019

JOHNSTON - Currently, welding jobs in the CSRA are going unfilled due to lack of training in the field. ECSD’s Adult Education Program is offering a Welding night class at Strom Thurmond Career and Technology Center starting February 11, 2019.

“My students will gain the skills to get them in the door to a great career if they work hard. Students who took the night class last time are making a living now welding,” explained Bill Cheatham, Welding teacher.

According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook (2017), average welders make $19. 35 per hour with a high school diploma at an entry level position.

The class is open to adults and high school students. “Adult learners have to enroll in Adult Education because we are funded though Adult Education from the state,” said Vickie Butler, ECSD Adult Education Director. Students must take the WIN, which a career readiness assessment used by most businesses and industries to determine who to hire.

For students who not considered as an adult education participant, the course cost $200. There is a $50 registration fee for all seeking to participate in this dynamic career opportunity. The registration covers all the materials, supplies and textbooks needed for the class.

For more information, please contact Vickie Butler at 803.275.4158.
