Milledgeville, Ga. – When the semester begins on August 13 at Central Georgia Technical College’s (CGTC) Milledgeville campus, welding students will not be on campus. That is because Baldwin County High School is providing welding lab space for the College to offer evening Welding courses for credit.
“We are excited to bring our Welding program to Baldwin County for the community,” said Dana Davis, vice president for Satellite Operations at CGTC. “Currently, we teach Welding at Baldwin High School through dual enrollment and have seen success in partnering with the high school. We know that the joint use of resources provides the best opportunities for our community, and so through our partnership, we will be offering Welding in the evenings for credit to adult students in our area.”
Welding and Joining Technology courses form part of the new additions on the list of diploma and certificate programs that the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) recently approved for HOPE Career Grant funding.
TCSG increased the number of courses eligible for funding at each of its 22 institutions statewide. For CGTC, 27 programs were added to the existing 109 HOPE Career Grant offerings previously offered.
Welding and other HOPE Career Grant programs at CGTC provides qualified current and prospective students new technical education opportunities in high-demand career fields at little to no cost.
CGTC’s fall semester begins August 13. Registration is ongoing.
