The Downhole Tool and Pipe Welding programs were developed with input from local oil and gas representatives. Both are fast-track programs, one and two semesters respectively.
Additionally, the Welding Program (located at the Breckenridge and Brownwood campuses) and Diesel Technology (located in Sweetwater) have seen significant growth since the start of classes in 2012. Both programs have a wait list for the spring 2013 semester.
At the Abilene campus, Computer Aided-Drafting and Emergency Medical Services have an increased number of students compared to fall 2012.
