This intensive, hands-on training program offers participants the opportunity to become a member of a well-paying, skilled profession. Students will develop an understanding and proficiency in the areas of shop math, basic drafting, blueprint reading, safety (including OSHA certification), and the use of oxy/acetylene and plasma-arc cutting equipment.
