Welding technology

Welders are skilled, well-paid, highly sought-after professionals. We train our welding students in Oxy-Fuel cutting, brazing and welding, as well as arc welding in the Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) and Flex Co red Arc Welding (FCAW) processes. Students learn how to work with mild steel, stainless steel and aluminum in preparation for entrance in welding and fabrication field. 

In our welding technology program, you may: 

  • Earn a certificate in basic or advanced welding technology 
  • Weld materials from 18-gauge sheet metal up to structural thickness of plate as well as thin and heavy wall pipe
  • Fabricate structural materials such as channels, angles, beams and tubes
  • Prepare to pass the AWS D1.1 structural steel shielded metal arc Welding Certified Welding Test, which involves groove welds on 3/8" ASTM A36 steel plate in all four positions, both open root and with backing
