BTC ramping up classes for welding students
Blackhawk Technical College in Janesville, Wis., is responding to demand from students and industry by increasing by 50 percent the number of welders it trains this year. Blackhawk turns out about 40 welders a year, with two cohorts of 20 students each, said Kirke "Bo" Plank, dean of advanced manufacturing. One cohort is trained on the morning shift, one on an evening shift. Classes are full, and there's a waiting list, Plank said. Just a few weeks before the fall semester began, BTC decided to open a third section of welding.
