Industrial Technology Students Utilize Welding Lab at CFI CFI student Trent Keltner working in Welding Lab

Industrial Maintenance Technology (IMT) students at the Laurel County Schools Center for Innovation (CFI) are learning to utilize metal fabrication skills in the welding lab. 

Over the last three years, IMT students have completed coursework in Principles of Electrical Technology, Electrical Motor Controls, Programmable Logic Controls, and Shop Management. The students are currently completing Welding for Maintenance.   The Welding for Maintenance class teaches students three major fabrication processes, such as MIG, TIG, and Stick welding.

“Students Trent Keltner and Isaac Campbell have earned national certification for Electrical Technician in our National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER) accredited program at the CFI,” said Mr. Gary Karr, IMT Program Coordinator.  IMT students also learn construction technology skills in the residential lab utilizing various saws, building supplies, hand tools, and power tools.  “Our graduates of the IMT program are highly sought after for careers in advanced manufacturing by various major employers in the region,” added Karr.

“We are very proud of our IMT program and the exceptional opportunities that it provides our students for career development,” remarked Dr. James M. Davis, CFI Principal.
