This 650-hour program provides training in a broad range of welding skills. A student will learn lab safety, weld print reading, oxy fuel cutting and carbon arc cutting and gouging. The course provides instruction in four of the most common welding processes; Shielded Metal Arc Welding SMAW, Flux Cored Arc Welding FCAW, Gas Metal Arc Welding GMAW (MIG), and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding GTAW (TIG). Students will also learn structural fabrication skills and be provided with an introduction to both pipe welding and robotic welding. The program prepares a student for entry level industrial welding employment.
Certifications Available Within Program
Students will be given the opportunity to test for American Welding Society certifications, actual receipt of certification is based on successful passage of cert testing and completion of certifying agency criteria.
