Partnership in Education & Training on Oregon's South Coast
Almost half of the nation’s welding workforce is retiring. This will create a large demand for new skilled welders.
Welding and fabrication is needed in shipyards, construction, automotive plants, manufacturing and various other industries. These jobs require a high level of skill, are high paying and offer opportunities worldwide.
A career as a professional welder is not something you should leave to chance. Thoughtful educational planning is critical to being successful in the field.
This project works with South coast manufacturing firms as well as local educational and economic development partners to create opportunities for quality training in high skilled high wage jobs for the future.
