Holmes Community College is offering a night welding class at the Attala Center in Kosciusko beginning Jan. 10. Students will receive a certificate of completion upon finishing the six-week course. Classes will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-8:30 p.m., and the cost of the course is $250.
Individuals will be introduced to safety in welding, welding equipment set-up, electrode selection and classification, oxyfuel cutting/set-up/operations, general fabrication and general blueprint reading. Emphasis will be on technique, proper welding position and set-up operations. The three most common welding fabrication processes used for metal fabrication will all be covered: metal inert gas (MIG), tungsten inert gas (TIG) and shielded metal arc welding (Stick).
Individuals must provide their own personal safety equipment, which includes hearing protection, leather boots, a welding jacket (or long-sleeved 100 percent cotton shirt) and denim jeans or 100 percent cotton pants. No tennis shoes will be permitted.
