Paul D. Camp Community College Workforce Center Graduates Third Class of Marine Welders

Paul D. Camp Community College recently graduated 10 students from its Fast Track Marine Welding program—a non-credit, 120-hour program on the Franklin Campus that provides hands-on training, job shadowing opportunities and job placement support.
 
The College’s Division of Workforce Development and Career Development Center, as well as its Fast Track Marine Welding students in the latest session of the program, have benefited from a generous $10,000 grant awarded by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation.
 
The program is designed to provide fast-paced, focused training of welding essentials and is targeted for individuals who are unemployed, particularly long-term. Not only does the program prepare students for the workforce, but also provides employers with trained candidates.
