Welding Technology

About

The Welding Technology program is designed to give the students the necessary classroom instruction, hands-on training and practical application needed for entry-level job performance. Knowledge of fundamental welding techniques and industry proven skills are gained by shop practice, student projects, and hands-on implementation. Oral instructions, written, and performance tests are given to measure the student’s proficiencies.

Most instruction is given on an individual basis, thus allowing the student to progress at his/her own pace. Welding is a multi-faceted craft and each area of the state has specific processes and skills needed for their industry base. Instructors concentrate on specific area needs, and prepare students with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in any area of welding. American Welding Society (AWS) Certification testing is available for those that wish to pursue that option.
