Welding
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) Pipe Welding
3) Welding Certification Preparation

Intro 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.

Intro to Welding: MIG, TIG, & Stick $201.60 7:30 AM-2:30 PM MTW 1/12-5/6 Rm 171
Intro to Welding: MIG, TIG, & Stick $201.60 6:00 PM-10:00 PM MTW 2/5-5/6 Rm 171

Pipe Welding
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.

Pipe Welding $201.60 7:30 AM-2:30 PM MTW 1/12-5/6 Rm 171

Welding Certification Prep
This course is designed to prepare students for the American Welding Society's welding certification. This course is open only to experienced welders or students who have successfully completed the MCC Introduction to Welding course. The instructor holds certifications from the American Welding Society (AWS), American Society for Mechanical Engineers, American Petroleum Institute. The instructor is a Certified Welding Inspector and Certified Welding Educator through AWS. Students can take certification test welds in the class with the instructor when ready.

Welding Certification $201.60 7:30 AM-2:30 PM MTW 1/12-5/6 Rm 171
