School in Kennesaw, Ga., to train welders
from The Marietta Daily Journal
A new school devoted to welding is opening in Kennesaw, Ga. "There are plenty of welding jobs available out there, but the average welder is 54 and there aren't enough young people out there interested in the trade," said Ryan Blythe, executive director of Georgia Trade School. Welders earn an average of $22 per hour in Georgia, Blythe said. The school will begin offering the 15-week class to students later this month, after it receives its post-secondary license from the state. Classes will be held Monday through Friday, 35 hours per week. Open welding labs will be held at night.
