Texas State Technical College West Texas will display the college's new mobile welding lab March 22 at the Brownwood Campus. This state-of-the-art tool is a self-contained lab/classroom that will be open for the public to walk through and even take a turn welding a bead. The mobile lab was designed and fabricated to allow TSTC West Texas to take welding instruction to remote locations to serve both industry and educational institutions. It is this flexibility that allows the school to customize training to fit the customerís needs.

The mobile lab is equipped with eight state-of-the-art multi-process welding machines and a classroom which seats eight. As the need for qualified welders in the Big Country continues to grow, this invaluable tool will help fill those positions with trained workers.

The public is welcome to tour the mobile lab, meet TSTC faculty, staff and tour the entire campus. TSTC West Texas offers more than 25 programs in industries that are hiring now. Some programs require only one semester of instruction. Financial aid is available. TSTC West Texas is rated a Military Friendly School and veteran services are available.
