Moraine Park Technical College and Brenner Tank LLC of Fond du Lac will offer a third Welding Boot Camp starting Jan. 23.
Developed with area manufacturers, the eight-week paid training program provides participants with the entry-level welding skills that employers need to maintain a competitive workforce. Students earn four credits that may be articulated into Moraine Park’s Welding technical diploma.
The Welding Boot Camp covers the basic knowledge required for welding in the stainless steel and aluminum manufacturing industry. Students are introduced to gas metal arc (GMAW) and gas tungsten arc (GTAW) welding processes, as well as interpretation of the drawings most frequently encountered in the industry. They will learn the principles of arithmetic and measuring, develop safety skills and apply welding skills to stainless steel and aluminum.
The program takes place Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, Jan. 23 to March 14, from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Room E-156 on Moraine Park’s Fond du Lac campus, 235 N. National Ave.
