WELDING CLASS SEEKS DELAWARE VETERANS
Recently discharged veterans who still have unused Montgomery GI Bill benefits and want to begin a career in welding may find the perfect place this January at the Delaware Skills Center (DSC) to get training and job placement.
The Skills Center has teamed up with the Delaware Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) to make this come alive.
“Returning veterans are a superb pool of talent,” said Edward J. Capodanno, President of Delaware’s ABC Chapter. “Jobs in construction and other fields have rebounded and returning men and women can earn a fine wage.”
The plan is to find those veterans that have an interest in entering the career fields taught at the Delaware Skills Center, pay for the classes with unused educational benefits, and place the graduates into jobs through the Associated Builders and Contractors network of employers, Mr. Capodanno said.
“We envision this being an ongoing program covering the range of skills taught at the Skills Center, he said.
To get the ball rolling ABC and DSC would like to begin by recruiting veteran students for the welding class beginning in late January.
To find out more, veterans need to attend a recruiting event at 8:30 a.m., December 10th, 11th, or 12th, 2014 at the DSC campus, 1300 Clifford Brown Walk Wilmington, DE 19801.
