My husband works as a welding instructor, and has obtained that job from adult ed classes and on the job training/experience. He wants to get his CWI (certified welding inspector), but the program costs $4000. We are mostly a one income family (I work part time in the school system) so that's way more than we can swing and we can't take on a loan- our budget's stretched too thin as it is. He has been offered so many opportunities, some within the company he works for, but he's afraid to step out on a limb because we rely on the money he brings in. If he had the certifications, he would be more confident to try the promotions... Right now he's comfortable working in his position because he's protected by the union.
SO, long story short, is there scholarships out there for adults? For technical certifications? Any idea where we would even look?
Also, I would love to go back to school now that the kids are getting older. I only finished a year of college (3.96 GPA), before I quit to get married. :( You couldn't have told me then what I know now!
