CHICOPEE, Mass. (WGGB) – Career Technology programs are a big part of learning at Chicopee Comprehensive High School. The Welding program is one of the most popular. Students at the school are training on a virtual welder. It teaches the students metal fabrication, welding and design. Teachers at the school say the benefits of using a virtual welder are two-fold. Not only dose the school save on energy it is also a great training tool that is very realistic for the kids to us as well.
Students should have not trouble getting a job when they graduate. By year 2020 there will be a shortage of upwards to three-hundred thousand welders nationwide.
