A Career In Welding Is An Investment Into The Future
 
 
The Welding Technology program at Etowah County Career Technical Center puts a primary focus on preparing students for a career in pipe/tube welding. The class is operated and taught with an A-Z curriculum, beginning with Stick (SMAW) Beads, Pladding, Fillet"all position", Open Butt Joints "all position", Pipe/Tube "all position". SMAW is followed by TIG welding with the same progressions, and MIG is mixed in at some point before completion of SMAW. All students in this program have the option to take dual enrollment classes with me three nights a week at Gadsden State, starting in the 11th grade. A healthy relationship with the Anniston Army Depot is also providing students with "co-op" jobs through their senior year then being hired permanent after graduating from Gadsden State currently we are 100% successful with placing students at the depot.
