MEQUON — An entry-level welding certificate program will be offered from May 26 to July 24 at the new welding laboratory at Milwaukee Area Technical College’s Mequon Campus, 5555 W. Highland Road.

The cost of the courses will be covered by a U.S. Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grant as part of a “Making the Future” project to develop, expand and improve advanced manufacturing career pathways.

Classes will be held during the daytime or during late afternoon/early evening, depending on which time is most convenient for the majority of applicants. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age.

The certificate includes classes in “Gas Metal ARC Welding Practices,” “Blueprint Reading for Welders,” “Welding Trades Mathematics,” “Academic Math Support” and a Manufacturing Skills Certification (MSSC) Safety Class. Students must take all five classes. Some of the courses can be applied to MATC’s welding technical diploma program.

Space is limited. For more information, contact Christine Woda at 414-297-6402 or or Elan Namath at 414- 297-6655 or at .
