Welding Technology
 
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Skilled welding technicians have multiple employment options and are a vital link in the manufacturing, construction and facilities maintenance industry. As a two-year program, Welding Technology provides students the skills of arc welding, resistance welding, brazing and soldering, as well as cutting, heat-treating and metallurgy. Students gain knowledge of electrical systems, power sources and different welding technologies, welding systems, print interpretation and measurement, as well as the use and interpretation of visual symbols related to welding.
 
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
This course will give the student knowledge and technical skills that will prepare them for positions as an entry-level welder or advanced placement in post-secondary education. Work-based learning sites are developed in the second year to allow the opportunity to intern at many local businesses. Students are provided with internship experiences, the opportunity to earn industry-recognized AWS certifications and a Career and Technical Endorsement on their diploma by successfully passing an industry-standard technical assessment.
