Western Announces $3.5 Million Remodeling Project For Apprenticeship Center

Western Technical College announced today a $3.5 million remodeling project of the college’s Welding and Apprenticeship Facility, located at 2860 21st Place South, La Crosse.

“Apprenticeship programs are becoming more important for our workforce across the state, with annual median salaries exceeding $70,000,” said Western President Roger Stanford. “Our current facility lacks the latest infrastructure to support those needs. With this remodeling project, we’ll have a state-of-the-art building to support workforce opportunities across the region.”

The project is expected to begin later this spring. Construction is expected to be complete before the beginning of the Fall 2020 term.
