What's New in Welding
Welding: a field of opportunity
Welding has proven to be a successful career choice for three friends from South Central Nebraska. Uriel Martinez, of Imperial, Paul Uerling, of Indianola, and Jimmy Hickert, of McCook, all went through the two-year Welding Technology Program at McCook Community College.
All were looking for the same thing when they enrolled - a career that paid well and wouldn't require a lot of schooling.
