The Welding Technology program prepares the student for certification in a variety of welding techniques and processes. Students begin doing basic welding beads and progress step-by-step to achieve the final goal of pipe welding. Progression is monitored and mastery of each technique is achieved by a combination of classroom, individual, and text book instruction. Graduates of the Welding program will be able to demonstrate competencies in flame cutting, electric ARC welding, gas tungsten, gas metal ARC welding, and flux-cored ARC welding processes.
