Fanshawe launches welding apprenticeship program


Fanshawe College’s School of Applied Science and Technology is launching a welding apprenticeship program to help meet the need for skilled tradespeople in southwestern Ontario. The pilot program will provide 20 students with training in Fanshawe’s renovated 50-station welding lab, with the potential to ramp up to 50 or 60 students in future academic years. “We have heard loud and clear from industry partners in this region … ‘We support (this program)’, and their support, by the way, is a factor in the (government’s) decision,” said Fanshawe Dean, Faculty of Science, Trades, and Technology Stephen Patterson.
