Welding Training Program
Sponsored by the Workforce Development Consortium
The welding course is offered at the Biloxi High School Vo-Tech on Saturdays by a retired Ingalls certified instructor and the high school welding instructor.
It’s a 5-hour course, 32 weeks in length. If the participants are able to pass the certification and other requirements, Ingalls may hire them.
How It Works
Upon employment they will receive job-specific welding training. As part of their consortium particiation, Ingalls provided scrap metal and other supplies for the welding class. They also provided an instructor to ensure employability of the students by Ingalls once they complete the course.
