Welding

Welding Student

The Welding Program offers instruction in basic and advanced welding. All types of welding machines are covered in the instruction such as electric arc, oxyacetylene, gas tungsten arc welding, dual shield, and wire feed. The program is designed to teach students welding of ferrous and non ferrous metals. Instruction is given in various welding techniques, including flat, vertical overhead, horizontal, and pipe. Related technical phases of welding are also covered. Students may attain the craftsman level, learn layout and welding symbols, and become qualified to take a state certified welding test. Both day and evening classes are available.
