Training in welding is offered to those who wish to learn basic welding skills or to upgrade their knowledge in welding and fabrication. All welding classes are offered on a self-paced basis. Classes use course outlines, books, videos, and instructor-assisted instruction with practical hands-on training. Various types and thicknesses of material are welded in all positions with different welding processes. Courses in ornamental ironwork are also available. The degree program provides students with additional competencies in welding which will enhance their upward mobility.
Students are required to purchase personal protective equipment, tools, and textbooks. Students will receive a list of necessary equipment and books during orientation the first day of the course in which they enroll.
Students may complete deficiencies concurrently with the beginning courses in the program. Students not meeting a course prerequisite must have instructor permission to enroll.
