Welding Basic Certificate

Welding

Advanced Certificate (AC)

Welding is a challenging and rewarding career that combines the manual techniques of traditional welding processes with new digital skills used in robotic welding.  With continual advanced in welding technology, students in this program will study manufacturing materials and processes, including basic metallurgy and electricity, as well as print reading and fundamental quality assurance concepts.  The welding processes that students will master include Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW or “MIG” welding), Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW or “stick”), and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW or “TIG”).  Automated welding is taught using a FANUC robot and controller with a Lincoln Electric welder.  Basic Certificate completers will be able to gain jobs as welders and entry level jobs in automated (or robotic) welding.
