2017-18 WITC Dual Enrollment Welding AcademyThere’s an exciting new way for high school seniors to earn both high school AND college credit during their senior year FREE to the student! Because industry demand for entry level welders remains high in St. Croix and Polk counties, WITC-New Richmond is offering high school seniors an opportunity to begin a Career Pathway in welding.
Students can earn 10 dual high school and college credits, as well as complete two approved short-term technical diplomas for Gas Metal Arc Welding and Shielded Metal Arc Welding, if they complete the two required semesters. With added training, these credentials can lead to a full, one-year technical diploma in Welding from WITC.
Classes for the two semesters will be held at New Richmond High School and WITC-New Richmond. The seniors will spend about three hours every school day morning at WITC’s Dual Enrollment Welding Academy. Students are required to provide their own transportation to and from New Richmond High School, and WITC-NR.
Interested seniors must meet with their own high school guidance counselor/dual enrollment coordinator to determine eligibility in the WITC Dual Enrollment Welding Academy.
