Learn new skills in the welding trades with an introductory Welding Boot Camp program offered by McHenry County College’s Continuing Education Department. Classes begin in early February.
Welders work in a variety of environments, both indoors and out, using heat to melt and fuse metal for a common bond. Because so many of the products we use today involve welding, the opportunities in the welding industry are endless.
The next class takes place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1 through March 22 at the Woodstock Center, 912 Trakk Lane in Woodstock. Use course ID: NWL C01 012 to register.
For those interested in weekday classes, other classes are offered at the same location from 6 to 9:20 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday beginning Feb. 3 (course ID: NWL C01 013) or Tuesday and Thursday beginning Feb. 4 (course ID: NWL C01 014).
Cost is $1,000. An advanced welding class will begin in April and will cost $500. To register, call the MCC Registration Office at (815) 455-8588. For more information, call Tracy Berry at (815) 455-8758 or Dori Sullens at (815) 455-8559.
