East Mississippi Community College strives for career placement

August 24, 2018

 

 

In it's mission for career placement East Mississippi Community College recently partnered with a local business Advance Tabco which specializes in manufacturing sinks out of Dekalb, Mississippi.

 

 Starting in September, this partnership will consist of a 4-week training at the college that will provide students with the necessary skills in welding and have them ready to go work at Advance Tabco after completing the program.

 

“We’re going to be running a 32 hour class for advance Tabco, it’s going in work with GMAW process, Gas, Metal, Art, Welding ,and then the second half of the class; we’re going to move over into aluminum welding because the new jobs coming in advance Tabco, their going to be using Aluminum process, so we’re just trying to get ahead of the time and make sure that we can help advance Tabco grow.”

 

EMCC Welding Instructor Shane McDaniel says with new job opportunities opening up at  Advance Tabco it creates a demand for more welders to get hired.

 

“ They’re expanding in Dekalb Mississippi; they’re going to add around 25 new jobs, so we’re excited about working with them, and the workforce in the evening class, and dual ed, to be able to teach people that want to advance in welding, that may not have the opportunity to come in the day; that they’ll be able to take advantage of the night classes.”
