NGTC Welding Program Receives Certification

A North Georgia Technical College program receives accreditation.

The Welding and Joining Technology program at North Georgia Technical College recently achieved the status of Accredited Training Education Facility from the National Center for Construction Education and Research, or NCCER.

NCCER is a not-for-profit education foundation created to develop standardized construction and maintenance curricula and assessments with portable, industry-recognized credentials. These credentials include transcripts, certificates and wallet cards that are tracked through NCCER’s National Registry.

North Georgia Technical College President Dr. Gail Thaxton says that this is a great achievement for the school and an outstanding credential that it can now offer to students.
