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.
