The Technical Certificate in Welding is designed to prepare students for entry level positions in welding manufacturing by producing students with welding skills applicable in a number of industrial settings.
The Technical Certificate in Welding prepares students for a variety of positions, including aluminum welder, fabricator, fitter/welder, maintenance welder, mig welder, or sub arc operator.
While each industry requires different tasks for professional welders, typical day-to-day tasks may include:
Welding components in flat, vertical, or overhead positions.
