Minnesota State Community and Technical College offers a unique mobile welding training facility that offers convenient customized curriculum to companies throughout the region.
The trailer, a converted refrigerated semi-trailer, houses 12 training stations where instructor Josh Heibel teaches welding skills in sessions that range from 16 to 160 hours. It was developed to meet industry training needs in the college’s 19-county region and to provide education to workers who were unable to enroll in on-campus or credit-based courses. Nearly 300 men and women have been trained in the college’s welding trailer since it went on the road in May 2013.
