Welding

Critical Skill in High Demand

Welding is and will continue to be a productive, cost-effective manufacturing process. Advanced technology is creating more uses for welding in the workplace and expanding employment opportunities. Welders have the ability to take their skills and cross over into a variety of fields. Through the Learn Work Earn program adult learners can acquire the skills needed for welding in construction, fabrication, plant maintenance settings and more. The welding technology core is designed to provide training in many areas of the welding trades. Subjects covered include electric arc, wire feed, heliarc welding, oxyacetylene welding and various flame cutting processes. Students work with a wide variety of metals, including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and cast iron. Shop fabrication, math, and blueprint reading are also covered. Welders already in the field can update their knowledge by registering for specific major courses.
