The Economic Development Division at Chattahoochee Technical College has partnered with Goodwill of North Georgia this summer to provide several weeks of workforce training in welding. This training is being conducted at the college’s North Metro Campus in a mobile welding trailer provided by the Technical College System of Georgia.
The current students who are participating in this program are being sponsored by Goodwill of North Georgia, and have the opportunity to receive multiple American Welding Society (AWS) credentials, according to Chattahoochee Tech Dean of Economic Development Shane Evans. “Goodwill of North Georgia is a longtime partner, and we are excited in being able to add welding to what we offer,” said Evans.
The Economic Development Division at Chattahoochee Tech offers non-credit, professional development courses that help citizens gain the necessary skills to further personal career goals. They also offer a wide variety of training and support programs for local business and industry that aid in the creation and retention of jobs.
