New River CTC's Welding programs are offered at the Advanced Technology Center in Ghent, WV and the welding lab located near the Greenbrier Valley Campus, in Lewisburg, WV. The programs are structured to incorporate a large amount of hands-on learning opportunities. Students participate in a variety of lab projects and individual assignments to learn and refine welding skills as well as community outreach activities. Students have the opportunity to sit for American Welding Society (AWS) national certifications at our AWS testing site at the Lewisburg location.

The facilities consist of seventeen individual booths that are equipped to provide training in the four main welding processes, OFW (oxy-fuel), SMAW (Stick), GMAW (MIG), and GTAW(Tig). The Welding labs have a comprehensive array of metal working equipment including a metal sheer, CNC plasma torch, an ironworker, a plate roller, and individual fabrication tables.

Student Success Stories

Matt Bennett: After receiving his degree from Concord University in Biology/Pre Med., Matt Bennett found himself unsatisfied with his job opportunities and wanted to find a career in which he could be outdoors and make a high wage. He then began his pursuit of the Electric Distribution Engineering Technology (EDET) Certificate of Applied Science and graduated in May 2014. Matt currently works as an Apprentice Lineman for Davis H. Elliot Company, Inc. and is loving it. He contributes his academic success to the outstanding EDET instructors. “The knowledge and experience that Mike and James bring to the program is so important. It is easy to see the passion and dedication that the instructors have in the material they teach and for the overall learning of the student. The contacts that they have established in the industry increases the likelihood of getting students jobs.” Matt hopes to continue working in the industry and one day come back to teach in the field.
