Huge Grant Boosts Unique Program At Great Falls College

Posted: Updated:

Welding at Great Falls College just got a big boost, a $1.5 million boost to be exact, and it's making the fantastic program even better.

"Great Falls College in cooperation with the Governor's office helped to establish that grant.  What that grant will be used for is to upgrade and enlargen our welding area so we can take in additional students based on the demand in the community," said Brittany Budeski, Director of Admissions.

The welding facility is a unique environment that's safe and perfect for learning every technique.

"It's one of my favorite places on campus, actually.  They have individual bays that they get to work in and it's a ventilated system.  All of the necessary safety, so there's the gloves and the goggles and the jackets that they wear," said Budeski.

The state of the art equipment and additional safety measures actually free up the students to do their best work.

"Very safe…very secure environment which gives them the opportunity to really focus on welding every single day.  Everything that they need, every type of equipment, lots of different types of metals, they get access to that every single day that they're in the program," said Budeski.

An expanding facility means additional classroom spots open for the January Semester, and Great Falls College is ready to give you the info prospective students need.

 "We'll actually have two sessions on July 16th for anyone interested in the profession, in our program, wanting to know a little more about welding, we'll do everything from start to finish, how to apply to the college, how to apply to the program, what you can expect for employment," said Budeski.

So if this unique program and awesome facility have sparked your interest, make sure to be there.
