Welding (Industrial Technology) Basic Certificate

Manufacturing Welding (Industrial Technology)

Basic Certificate (BC)

Beginning Summer 2017, this program is no longer accepting new students. Please refer to CCC’s other Advanced Manufacturing offerings.

The Industrial Welding Technology certificate program provides students with welding skills in a shop setting. Students are taught ARC, MIG, and TIG welding and all welding positions. Plasma and oxy-gas cutting are also taught. In addition, students examine job safety, ethics, and metallurgy. Graduates find entry-level employment as welders, solderers, and braziers. Upon program completion, students will receive Scaffold Safety Certification and the 10-Hour OSHA Construction Certification.
