ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - More than 300 welding jobs are open in the Abilene area, creating a need for qualified employees. 

Texas State Technical College Breckenridge offers a three-semester welding class that certifies graduates to fill these in-demand jobs. 

Stephen Hope, a TSTC Welding Technology instructor in Breckenridge, said students typically have jobs when they graduate.


"There are so many welding jobs available right now that they can't fill a lot of their positions," he said.

Federal experts project the welding industry will only continue to grow in the coming years, growing to nearly 427,000 jobs.
