Program Length

Two Semesters
Three Semesters
Four Semesters

Degree(s) Offered

Career Certificate
Technical Certificate
Associate in Applied Science

The Welding School is designed to prepare the student for employment and  advancement in an occupation, which requires textbook knowledge and hands on skill of welding.

This program is designed to prepare the student to enter the job labor market upon  successful completion. Welding theory, electrode classification and identification, blue-print reading and welding symbol interpretation, plasma and oxyacetylene cutting, and shop safety are stressed.

The student will begin with elementary welding procedures and will progress  through advanced procedures. In the more advanced courses the students are taught the use of the Metal Inert Gas (MIG) Aluminum Welding and the Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Welding on aluminum and stainless steel for special purposes.

Career Opportunities Include

Welding/Fabrication Shops
Shipbuilding Industry
Manufacturing Plants
Industrial Maintenance
Construction
