Des Moines Area Community College’s Newton Campus is hosting a welding fair on Thursday. The event is a chance to meet employers who need skilled welders, and learn about training opportunities on the DMACC Campus. DMACC is offering a chance to take welding training courses for free. The non-credit Welders for Manufacturing class is designed for people with no welding experience, and has been endorsed by area manufacturers including Vermeer Corporation. David Landon, Manager of Welding Engineering at Vermeer, says that there is an immediate need for welders and that need is growing. The welding fair will be held from 4-6pm on Thursday.
