In this 90-hour course, you will gain a technical understanding of Gas Metal Arc Welding (Mig) and Flux-Cored Arc Welding. You will be instructed on welding safety, equipment adjustments, metal transfer, shielding gases and you will gain proficiency in gas-shielded and metal core procedures. Welding will be done in all positions on thin gauge to thick mild steel carbon material, single and multiple pass, fillet and groove welds. The course will also provide you an understanding of oxyacetylene cutting as well as safety practices in cutting. Dedicated time will be dedicated to Mig welding of aluminum in various positions. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to perform production and maintenance welding, structural welding, and other related medium to heavy-duty manufacturing welding. Qualification testing will be conducted and in accordance with the American Welding Society (AWS) D1.1 Structural Welding Code. If you are able to show proficiency in each of the welding processes, you may be qualified. The total tuition for the class and testing is $2750.00. Two books are required and can be purchased at the College Book Store or by calling 402-844-7140. A complete list of required tools and equipment can be purchased at Matheson Trigas (dba Linweld) in Norfolk. You can request a full list of tools and equipment by emailing amyk@northeast.edu. Financial assistance is available through the Community College GAP Assistance Program for students meeting income guidelines. For more information, call 402-844-7245.

Variable Rate Irrigation: Possibly the Best Money You Can Spend

With the concern surrounding our water resources in the recent years, there is more and more attention being given to the most critical resource on the planet: Water. The purpose of this offering is to increase the understanding and realization that utilizing Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) helps address the concerns of our agriculture communities.

With the utilization of VRI, producers can make steps to address these concerns. Preserving resources by reducing the total amount of water applied. Increasing yield potential by getting the inches to those acres that need them the most. Increasing plant health in areas that tend to get wet feet. The impact can be vast.

Come join us for training on a Precision Agriculture technology that can help to address natural resources concerns, while having a direct positive impact to your bottom line.

Topics and benefits covered will include:
 Reduced water usage
 Increased overall crop health
 Reduced movement of nitrates through the soil due to reduced puddling during irrigation
 Reduce the number of rounds the pivots make during a season
 Reduce variability in crop health across the field
 Utilization of Soil Moisture Probes
 Use and statutes regarding water meter installation

This class will be offered via ITV from Norfolk to the other locations.
