Sheldon, Iowa — If you qualify, you may be able to take a couple of basic courses for free at Northwest Iowa Community College.

Norma Azpeitia, a Career Pathways Navigator and Academic Specialist at NCC tells us about the opportunity.

She says they are very basic courses to get you started on your way to becoming a welder or machinist.

She tells us the college is also providing other support, and when the courses are done, they’ll even help you meet some possible employers.

Northwest Iowa Community College is receiving some grants to help them offer the courses.

According to Azpeitia, English language learners are welcome, and no high school diploma is needed. However, you must attend the informational meeting on Monday, February 24 at 6pm in room C328 Building C to be eligible for the opportunity. Free pizza will be served to those who attend.

To RSVP for the informational meeting or if you have any questions you are invited to call 712-631-5500 or email
