West-MEC Launches New Adult Welding Program to Equip Arizonans with High-Demand Skills

West-MEC to introduce new adult welding technology program

West-MEC’s Southwest Campus is launching a new adult welding technology program that will provide students with hands-on training from industry experts. This 900-hour program, which begins on Monday at the campus located at 500 N. Verrado Way in Buckeye, covers various aspects of welding including thermal cutting, shielded metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, flux-core arc welding, and gas tungsten arc welding.

In addition to this program, West-MEC offers a total of 33 programs at 49 Valley high schools that provide certifications and credits for high school and college. These programs aim to help Arizonans gain the skills needed for higher-paying jobs. With only 31% of Arizona adults over the age of 25 holding a degree beyond a high school diploma, there is a growing need for programs like those offered by West-MEC.

West-MEC recognizes the importance of developing a skilled workforce and has made it their mission to provide adult education programs that equip the West Valley workforce with new skills or enhance existing ones to meet the demands of businesses and industries. Other adult programs available through West-MEC include aviation maintenance technology, dental assisting, HVAC, IT security, pharmacy technician, and precision manufacturing.
