It takes a special person to become a welder. If you have good eyesight, hand-eye coordination, and manual dexterity coupled with good math,
problem-solving, and communication skills, this may be the job opportunity of a lifetime.

Northland’s Welding Program is designed to teach incremental levels of welding skills, which enable students to achieve nationally recognized
certifications from the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and the AWS, the American Welding Society (NCCER/AWS Level 1 Entry Level Welder and Level 2 Advanced Level Welder). Industry markets acknowledge each certificate level is proof of acquired skills in various forms of welding, cutting, base metal preparation, welding inspection, safety, and metallurgy. This prepares students for certification tests in specific welding code applications, such as AWS, API, and ASME Sec IX.

In addition to welder certifications, students can obtain Certificates of Proficiency, a Certificate of Applied Science and an Associate of Applied Science degree. The NPC program also teaches leadership and employability strategies, such as career planning, job search basics and how to interview. You develop techniques to enhance your critical thinking and problem solving abilities.
