The Welding curriculum is designed for persons who seek a background in the basic principles and practices of welding. It is also valuable for those now engaged in welding who want to increase their welding skills.
Students receive training in theory and practice relating to OXY/ACTY gas welding & cutting, SMAW, FCAW, GTAW, and GMAW welding processes in accordance with current industrial practices. The content is based upon the studies and recommended practices of the American Welding Society (AWS) and other welding authorities.
Each major process is presented as a core program, providing a comprehensive treatment of equipment, filler rod material, joints and welds, weld testing, safety, welding symbols, and the fundamentals of print reading.
Information about curriculum and gainful employment can be found on the Industrial Maintenance Technology Programs & Classes page.
Job opportunities include sheet metal, job shop, structural steel, maintenance, and construction welding.
Four programs are offered: a Basic Welding Certificate, a MIG, TIG, and Pipe Welding Certificate, a Welding Diploma, and a General Technology Degree program with a concentration in Welding.
