During National Welding Month, Chattanooga State and BASF are drawing attention to the nationwide need for skilled welding professionals and underlining how the trade supports the vital infrastructure of manufacturing and the national economy.

“At BASF, welding is a vital part of piping and steel fabrication for our manufacturing facilities,” said Robert Gagliano, Site Director in Chattanooga. “We depend on welders to assemble the world we live in. They are an essential part of our everyday life in the chemical industry.”

According to the American Welding Society (AWS), the trade faces a shortage of more than 450,000 skilled professionals by 2022, creating a high demand for young talent. BASF and other employers aim to attract students to the welding trade through education and involvement with STEM programs that offer insight into the exciting, highly technical and challenging career opportunities.

BASF and Chattanooga State are partnering to launch BASF’s TECH Academy for local high school students. The week-long summer program includes field trips to learn about potential careers in welding and other technical fields; speak to professionals about their careers and explore manufacturing technology through hands-on activities and experiments. BASF’s TECH Academy is offered free of charge to rising high school juniors and seniors who apply for the program from Brainerd High, Central High, Hixson High, The Howard School, Polytech Academy, Red Bank High and Tyner Academy.

BASF employee Troy Helton exemplifies the success of early learning. He started his welding training in high school and now holds a welding code certification through American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Section IX. Today, Helton applies his welding expertise at the BASF plant on Polymer Drive and has been with the company for 11 years.

Adults who are interested in pursuing a career in welding are encouraged to enroll in the welding technology program at Chattanooga State. The community college offers courses covering a range of technologies that prepare students to attain industry certificates and careers.

“Chattanooga State partners with our region’s companies to meet workforce training needs and we know there is a strong demand for skilled welders,” said Lulu Copeland, Executive Director of Economic and Workforce Development at Chattanooga State. “By raising awareness for the career potential in welding, we connect more students to our program at Chattanooga State and ultimately help area employers succeed.”
