Cheboygan High School welding program prepares students for workforce | #education | #technology | #training

CHEBOYGAN — There’s a rising demand for trained welders throughout the state and country, with the American Welding Society predicting a deficit of 400,000 workers by 2024. 

However, some high school Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes are preparing students to enter the workforce and fill that need, including at Cheboygan High School. 

“Students, ninth through 12th grade have the opportunity to take Metal Fabrication, Machining, Welding Technology, and Advanced Welding Technology,” said Myles Fimbinger, welding instructor at Cheboygan High School. “When students leave any CTE program they are ready to enter the workforce as an entry level employee.”

Fimbinger said there has been a large, apparent increase in demand for people who are certified in welding over the last several years.

“Students also have the ability to enter other areas that are in high demand as well, such as electrical, mechanic, construction,” he said. “All industries which need welding personnel at all levels.”
