Career and Program Description

Welding is a skill used by many trades: sheet metal workers, ironworkers, boilermakers, carpenters, steamfitters, glaziers and repair and maintenance personnel in applications ranging from the home hobbyist to heavy fabrication of bridges, ships and many other projects. A variety of welding processes are used to join units of metal.

The Welding Technology Program has been developed specifically as an open entry and open exit (OEOE) program. The program is designed to fit the needs of a student (take as few or as many courses as desired), and have the following characteristics: open entry (enter at any time during the term); self-paced (learn at your own pace); flexible (select your own attendance schedule); individualized (a program can be tailor-made to fit specific needs); and, open exit (leave the program when you have met your training goals/needs).
The program provides training in S.A.W. (Submerged Arc Welding), S.M.A.W. (shielded metal arc welding,) G.T.A.W. (gas tungsten arc welding,) G.M.A.W. (gas metal arc welding,) F.C.A.W. (flux-cored arc welding,) O.A.W. (oxy-acetylene welding,) O.A.C. (oxy-acetylene cutting,) C.A.C. (carbon arc cutting,) P.A.C. (plasma arc cutting,) and basic fabrication. Lecture portions of the program include blueprint reading, welding principles, and codes and standards.

Consult a program advisor through the department to help plan a course of study that will allow you to achieve your educational goals.
