They start early and leave early, but it is not without progress. It is a hot, Texas summer to host the first summer session of welding, but these students – of all ages – don’t mind the heat.
North Central Texas College instructor Cody Martin opens the classroom at approximately 7:30 a.m. to give his students the early morning hours to learn this trade.
NCTC is currently offering $50 off per credit hour. The second summer session is still registering with a start date of July 15. The fall semester is also registering with a full load of welding courses available to students. Martin said it is never too late to learn a new trade or advance a current one.
