Wood Tech Center set to offer classes

ELKINS — The West Virginia Wood Technology Center will be offering several classes over the course of the next few months.

The upcoming classes are open to the public and the Wood Tech Center will be offering some courses to students in grades 9 through 12.

“One if the things we’re working on now is with the local and private schools — bringing their students in, 9-12, and providing them vocational classes like the Randolph County Vo-Tech does. They would be sending their students here for classes and to utilize our shop and our computer labs,” Mike McCauley, training coordinator for Randolph County Development Authority, said at their July meeting.

The Wood Tech Center will be offering classes that will range everywhere from beginner woodworking to basic home repair. Classes are open to ages 19 and up, unless otherwise indicated.
