According to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, they forecast ten percent job growth between 2010 and 2020 for skilled welders.
Students at Nicolet will be able to earn an accelerated welding technical diploma over the summer and fall semesters, 7 months.
Dean of Trade and Industry Brigitte Kumbier says “The accelerated format is a great way for students to quickly get the skills they need to start careers in this high-demand field.”
In addition to regular skills, the students also learn new technology such as robotic welding and computerized cutting.
