The state of Louisiana is beginning to experience a major surge in industrial construction projects. In addition to several significant recruiting wins by the Department of Economic Development (LED), the state’s improved business climate and the low price of natural gas are prompting companies to invest in new plant construction and expansions of existing plants.  The potential for a shortage of skilled industrial construction workers to build and maintain the plants and construction projects in the state of Louisiana has prompted public and private groups from around the state to convene to try to address the issue. 

The welding program developed by Compass Career College includes arc welding, resistance welding, cutting high-energy beam welding and cutting, solid state welding, ferrous and non-ferrous materials, welding metallurgy, welding processes and heat treating, safety, and applicable codes and standards.
