Mar 01, 2022
[West Columbia, SC] - On Friday, February 25, Midlands Technical College hosted its first-ever S.C. High School Welding Skills Competition.
Welding Program Director Caleb Fulwood created the event to generate interest in welding careers. It is one of the most in-demand jobs available in South Carolina and does not require a four-year college degree.
“At MTC, we teach all the fundamentals. Through our programs, someone can come in with no prior experience, and in a matter of months, have the skills they need to fill positions paying $35-$50 per hour,” said Fulwood. “That can go even higher for the best of the best and those who are willing to travel for shutdown work at large facilities.”
