Do you enjoy working with your hands or using high-tech industrial equipment?

Do you picture yourself as a builder or a problem solver?

The two-year Welding program at Columbia Basin College covers both theoretical and practical training in basic and advanced welding techniques, giving you all the skills you need to graduate and put your skills and passions to work in an in-demand career in today’s construction trades and fabrication shops.

Welding is a very sophisticated and technical science that requires mental application as well as hands-on abilities.

Your time is split between classroom learning (math, English and communications skills) and time in the shop practicing shield metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, pipe welding and fabrication.

Firefighting Resident Intern Program

For Seniors- Must be 18

Umatilla County Fire District 1 (Hermiston) and Umatilla Rural Fire Protection District (Umatilla) are both accepting applications to their resident intern programs.

The programs are almost identical in that they provide housing and tuition reimbursement for students who enroll in a fire science, emt, or nursing program. The Resident Intern program provides the student with valuable training and benefits, but more importantly, the experience that cannot be attained in a classroom - working shoulder to shoulder with our professionals personnel at emergency scenes. I have attached a flyer to this email to assist you with advertising. Interested candidates should apply to both programs to increase their chances of being selected. The applications can be found on-line at http://www.ucfd1.com/ or at https://umatillafire.org/ . The deadline to apply is May 14 with interviews taking place May 18th and 19th.
