Welding Academy

What is the Welding Academy: The Char-Em ISD Welding Academy takes place at East Jordan High School, where students will develop basic welding knowledge and skill application. They will participate in the creation of a team welding project and complete student-made take home projects. Students will experience first-hand what it is like to operate various equipment used in the welding industry, including welding power sources, grinders and manual plasma tables. This interactive experience will surely spark students’ interest and stretch their minds as they explore the exciting and rewarding opportunities available through a career as a welder and/or metal fabricator.
