Holmes Community College is offering a night welding class at the Attala Center in Kosciusko beginning in March. 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. The exact start-date will be announced once students sign up and the program reaches capacity.
Individuals will be introduced to safety in welding, welding equipment set-up, electrode selection and classification, oxy-fuel cutting/set-up/operations, general fabrication and general blue print reading. Emphasis will be on technique, proper welding position and set-up operations. 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.
