01-20-2010 -- CCAC midnight welding course kicks off Jan. 25
PITTSBURGH-The night-shift welding course at the Community
College of Allegheny County (CCAC) will begin January 25 with a
kick-off reception for students, faculty and administrators. The
reception from 10:30 to 11 p.m. at CCAC-West Hills center (1000
McKee Rd., Oakdale) is open to members of the press.
CCAC's "midnight welding" course runs from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m.
Monday through Thursday nights until June 21. Students will study
the same curriculum as the college's regular Welding Technology
certificate. The special hours were introduced due to high demand
for the program and lack of space in the welding lab at West Hills
As of January 20, the course was full, with 16 students
registered. During the kick-off reception, which follows an
orientation session, students will have access to the bookstore as
well as a vendor offering tools and equipment. The reception will
also offer light refreshments-and, of course, plenty of coffee.
