Description

Do you realize how much of your everyday life is influenced by welding? The joining of metals by a welding process application lets us enjoy a more comfortable lifestyle. From taking a hot shower, to keeping food refrigerated, to driving a car or truck down the highway, all require the skill and knowledge of a trained welder.

This program emphasizes hands-on, individualized instruction. Learn fundamentals in stick, wire, and tig welding; blueprint reading; welding processes and applications; and inspection. Certified weld inspectors are available to supervise and certify student work. Students will be prepared to enter the workforce immediately. Stop by and see the welding facility!
