Holmes Attala to offer night welding course in January

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.

To sign up for the class, contact Kim Fowler at email at
