Total Program Hours
In the fall of 1997, Northeast Texas Community College began the Welding Program in the Industrial Technology Building. It started with 12 Gas Metal Arc Welding students (MIG Class) on part-time bases. Every semester the college was getting more new interested students in this program. Therefore, in the fall of 2000, the college decided to make a full time welding program offering more and different kinds of welding courses at different times to support all welding students five days, and four nights a week (Monday through Thursday).
