NORFOLK, NE – Welding courses offered through Northeast Community College enhance the skill level for the fundamental welder or give a solid background and overview of welding for the non-welder. As a result, the College’s Applied Technology Division will offer a two-credit welding course beginning in late August.
Introduction to Welding (WELD 1990/20S & CRN #24662) will be held Wednesdays, January 15-March 4, from 6-9 p.m. in the Weller building, Room 101, on the Norfolk campus.
In this course, John Knapp, Northeast welding instructor, will present theory and safety of the welding field and assist students with hands-on experience with the major welding and cutting processes. The course designed for those thinking about a welding career or if they deal with welding in their jobs, but don’t actually have to weld. Purchasing agents, plant managers, distributor sales personnel, quality assurance people, administrators and counselors at schools and others will gain an understanding of welding that will make them more proficient at their job that involves welding related activities.
Supplies that will be needed include: a helmet, welding cap, clear safety glasses, pliers, needle nose pliers, carbon steel wire brush, welding coat or leathers, cutting goggles, and welding gloves.
Cost of the course is $244.
