    The welding program is a 2-year program designed to train students in the use of four of the major welding processes: Gas Metal Arc Welding, Flux Core Arc Welding, Shielded Metal Arc Welding, and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding. Training will meet ASME or AWS standards. The first year will take the student through SMAW, FCAW, GMAW, Oxyfuel cutting and welding, and blueprint reading. The second year will be devoted to learning GTAW, learning to weld pipe, basic layout, and fabrication.

    Program Goal
    The need for energy has created a global explosion in manufacturing, energy, and exploration. Skilled welders are needed more than ever to supply the needs of the different areas.

    Student Goal
    Students taking the welding course will have the option of either a 1 yr certificate or a 2 yr degree all students completing the program will receive a welding certification. Students will earn welding either AWS or ASME certifications for both pipe and structural steel
