Local welding jobs on upswing
In response to growing employer demand for welders, Horry Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) has expanded its welding certificate program to the Conway Campus beginning this fall.
The schedule includes two sections that will be offered on Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.. The welding certificate program lasts two semesters, with graduates scheduled to complete the program by May 2014. The complete welding certificate program consists of six courses in a variety of welding applications, including acetylene gas, MIG, TIG, Pipe and Aluminum. Classes begin on September 9th.
The College is also offering through its Continuing Education Division a basic welding class at night in Andrews and Conway. This class provides an exposure to the basic skills involved in welding for personal use at work or on the farm.
