"Welding jobs continue to be in high demand.

According to American Welding Society (AWS) estimates, by 2023 there will be a shortage of more than 375,000 welders nationwide. While this is an industry challenge, the shortage also presents an opportunity.

As a result, Kiel High School (KHS), Lakeshore Technical College (LTC), Miller Electric and Amerequip have joined together to develop a program rarely if ever seen in a rural school district. It includes state-of-the-art welders, a high-tech lab environment, a variety of classes, technical college credits, and paid apprenticeship opportunities."
