The Welding Technology program is designed to provide training in a sequential pattern for various welding processes. Those processes include: shielded metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, flux cored arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, oxy-acetylene cutting, brazing and welding, and the use of plasma arc cutting equipment. Students progress at their own pace. The program is designed to produce skilled welders in the millwright, structural welding and pipe welding areas. Students receive practical and theoretical training in the weld ability and identification of metals and alloys, use of equipment, manual and automatic cutting, blueprint reading, shop mathematics, and other related subjects. A large portion of each seven and a half hour workday is spent in the welding lab practicing each task in accordance with AWS standards. Students complete all lab assignments in accordance with industry standards, using the tools and equipment of the profession with an emphasis on safety and quality.
