Welding Technology

Gain hands-on skills and technical training in the areas of GMAW(wire-feed), SMAW(stick), GTAW(tig), flux cored arc, and pulse arc welding processes. Skills are also developed in plasma and manual fuel gas cutting processes. Additionally, related areas of instruction include interpretation of engineering drawings, blueprint reading, metallurgy, geometric tolerancing, and the AWS Standard Welding Symbol interpretation. An integral part of the skills training is a qualification/certification testing program. This is designed to qualify students for the AWS Structural Code in accordance with AWS QC-3 standards.

This ten-month welding program teaches 12 different welding and cutting processes in total – the three the program hones in on are SMAW, GTAW, and GMAW. The program is led by 3 Certified Welding Inspectors (CWIs) on staff who do in-house certification testing for students.
