Welding school offered

RICHMOND — The Madison County Cooperative Extension Service and the Madison County Area Technology Center (Vocational Tech. School) are offering a Welding School for Farmers. We are planning to offer this program in January and February of 2013. Participants will learn MIG welding, Stick welding and Oxy-acetylene cutting and brazing.

Meeting details are as follows:

We will meet from 6-9 p.m. two nights per week starting in January 2013. Meetings will take place either on Mondays and Wednesdays, or Tuesdays and Thursdays (depending on what the group decides). Training will take place at the Madison County Vocational Tech School beside Madison Central High School in Richmond. The full training will last for 7 weeks. You are not required to participate for the entire length of the program and can pick which methods you want to learn more about.  

Cost per person will be approximately $150. Local sponsorship is available and will reduce the price depending on how many are secured. In order to offer this program, we need at least 10 participants. Please do not let the cost deter you — give me a call if you are the slightest bit interested.

Participants will be trained by a welding instructor who is certified in both teaching and industry proficiency. You will learn by doing and will have ample opportunity to practice on your own and with guidance. If you would like, you can bring a project from the farm to work on.

Special thanks to Doug West, Principal of the Madison County Area Technology Center. We will be taking sign-ups through December.  If you are interested in this unique opportunity, give me a call at 623-4072.

Educational programs of the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
