Huntington Ingalls Industries' (NYSE: HII) Newport News Shipbuilding division donated training materials to the Southern Carolina Regional Development Alliance (SCA) for a welding program in Allendale County, S.C., this morning.

The SCA's Advanced Manufacturing Skills Training Program has already provided 47 students with welding training. The SCA is now working to expand the program by implementing curricula developed and used by Newport News Shipbuilding. In addition to the training materials, a shipyard welding instructor will work with the training facility to implement the curricula.

"Newport News Shipbuilding has found that by working closely and sharing some of our training materials with local community colleges and technical schools, we create a richer pipeline of talent applying for career opportunities with our company," said Bill Docalovich, Newport News' director of trades services.

Going beyond basic instruction, the curricula supplied by Newport News includes computer-based training followed by hands-on practice led by facility instructors. The instructors will have the opportunity to learn Newport News' instructional style and use it with their students. With Newport News' influence, the students will develop the skills necessary for welding in the manufacturing industry.

Huntington Ingalls Industries designs, builds and maintains nuclear and non-nuclear ships for the US Navy and Coast Guard and provides after-market services for military ships around the globe. Its website is at www.huntingtoningalls.com
