And now, those students will not only be training with local companies, but using locally-built equipment.
Today, NWTC and Miller Electric announced a partnership to supply more than a million dollars worth of new equipment to the college's welding labs.
The college president is agreement a win-win for everyone.
Says Jeff Rafn, " Miller Electric gets well-trained people using their equipment, and at the same time, we are getting the equipment we need to make sure these students are employable."
The agreement is a three year deal. The equipment being installed will be built at Mller plants in the Fox Cities.
