Recently 6 students from the St. Croix Regional Technical Center in Calais traveled to Bangor to take a welding exam. These high school students are from all three of the surrounding schools the technical center serves, Calais, Eastport and Baileyville. All 6 students passed a welder certification test. Cost of the exams are covered through Perkins funding, a federal act that supports career and technical education in all 50 states. The national credentials the students earn in the Technical Center programs teach students entry level job skills as well as preparing them for entrance into college level programs.
