This program has been removed from the curriculum.

Program Type: Certificate of Achievement

Division: Engineering & Technology

Program Description:
The curriculum prepares students to seek employment in the welding/metal working trades as welders, welder’s helpers, cutting torch operators, or apprentice fitters. Instruction includes five major welding processes: Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), semi-automatic Gas Metal and Flux Cored Arc Welding (GMAW, FCAW), oxy-acetylene welding, brazing and cutting. The student will prepare for the Structural Steel Groove, Light Gauge, Rebar and Pipe Certification test. These processes are used in the construction, aero-space and manufacturing industries. Certification is now considered a mandatory requirement for successful employment in these industries.

Metal fabrication skills including blueprint reading, shop math, metal fit-up and production welding techniques. Instruction includes structural steel welding codes, metallurgy, and welding theory. Students are required to purchase welding materials and protective clothing.

A Certificate of Achievement is awarded upon completion of all required courses with a grade of C or better.

Effective academic year: 2003-2004
