Our conversation today with Guy Curtis, Director of Marketing for Laurel Ridge Community College gave details about the new Fauquier Trades Center set to open in a few months on their Fauquier campus. Joining us to talk about their trades programs was Donna Comer, Program Manager at Laurel Ridge Workforce Solutions/Fauquier County Economic Development Coordinator and Anna Teter, Program Manager at Laurel Ridge Workforce Solutions.

Anna told us about a few of their programs and was particularly excited that welding will be added to the trades center in Fauquier when the new center opens. She explained how the 8000 sq. ft. space will work and talked about the classrooms & training spaces that will be available. Donna explained her dual role and the benefit to both the college and Fauquier County's workforce. She talked about the demand for jobs in the trades and gave actual numbers for positions available and median salaries.
