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.
