The Welding program is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to pursue one
or more welding certifications and to exit the program job ready. The first courses listed in
our current schedule are designed to serve both the beginning student and those with some
experience. Currently, the Welding program is divided into three preparatory levels with all
classes meeting at the same time:
1) Introduction to Welding: MIG, TIG, & Stick
2) Intermediate Welding
3) Welding Certification Preparation
Introduction to Welding: MIG, TIG, & Stick
This course teaches the fundamentals of welding and cutting and covers safety, oxyacetylene
welding, torch cutting, arc welding, and MIG and TIG welding. By the end of the course, students
should have entry-level knowledge of the welding process and depending upon individual ability,
advance to Intermediate Welding or the Certification Preparation course.
