Name:Brazosport College - Welding
Description:Welders make up 10 to 15 percent of a construction crew and are a vital part of any construction team. New construction projects in our community offer welders a golden opportunity to step right up and strike an arc.
Welding is the melting and fusing of metal using heat or pressure — making the metal structure strong so it can support the building. Welders work in shipbuilding, bridges, power plants, oil rigs, refineries, gas pipelines, tanks, buildings and even art.
Brazosport College’s classes offer hands-on, real-world, welding training — taught by experienced faculty. Employers in our region are asking for trained welders. The jobs are out there and the pay is good.
