Brookdale and Ocean County community colleges will partner to host a free welding training program for area residents from April 15 to June 20 in Toms River.
The 171-hour program, open to unemployed individuals with a high school diploma or equivalency degree, will cover a wide range of hands-on skills and basic industry knowledge, including arc welding, welding fabrication, blueprint reading, resume writing and job search skills.
At the conclusion of the program, students will sit for an American Welding Society certification exam, after which they will be eligible for an entry-level position in the field. The training program also offers job placement assistance.
All interested candidates must register for and attend one of two upcoming information sessions, held on March 16 in Lincroft and March 24 in Toms River. Attendees must bring an updated resume. To register or for more information visit www.brookdalecc.edu/freetraining or email email@example.com.
