Description

Course Objective: Welding Specialist Description: The Welding
Specialist program prepares a graduate for entry level positions in
structural, pipe and pipeline, and thin alloy welding. Key welding
processes include SMAW (stick), GMAW/FCAW (MIG/Fluxcore), and GTAW (TIG)
welding procedures. Students learn welding safety, torch cutting
processes, proper arc welding equipment setup, important welding control
techniques, fundamental welding processes, and basic welding metallurgy.
This intense program is primarily lab based and focuses on developing
critical welding skills. Upon successful completion of this program, the
graduate will receive a diploma and should possess the skills and
knowledge to test for welder certification through the American Welding
Society (AWS). As potential employees, students should be able to
successfully perform essential tasks expected from a certified welder,
with minimal supervision. With field experience, it is expected that
students’ welding production rates will increase to meet industry
standards. Students will learn on industry-standard equipment.
