Co-Lin Workforce welding students earn credentials
WESSON – Copiah-Lincoln Community College Workforce Education welding students completed the 10-month, non-credit evening welding course and secured the National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER) Welding CONTREN Level I and II certifications under the guidance of Don Blandon, Co-Lin welding instructor. This marks the ninth session of workforce evening welding classes that Blandon has taught at Co-Lin.
The program introduces participants to introductory craft skills (Core), Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG), and Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW).
