Anyone interested in the next welding training course being offered by the continuing education and workforce development division at Wor-Wic Community College has until Feb. 3 to apply.

The course will be offered Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Feb. 13 through April 24, at the Arcon Welding Training Center at 2028 Northwood Dr. in Salisbury.

This course is designed to provide the entry-level welder with the skills necessary to secure employment in the welding industry.

Basic safety for welders and an introduction to hand tools is included.

Tuition is free, but applicants must go through a selection process and space is limited. The training is being funded by an EARN (Employment Advancement Right Now) grant from the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.
