Welding Technology - CERT

The program prepares students with entry-level job skills in many phases of the welding industry and provides upgrading for those out in the field that need to acquire additional skills. Emphasis is placed on welding procedures used in the construction and manufacturing industry. Micro-Credentialing through American Welders Society (AWS) Certifications is made available. Students are encouraged to pursue multiple majors such as Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) and Small Business Administration if they plan to be self-employed.

Welding courses require safety equipment and supplies. Students must contact instructor to discuss appropriate personal protection equipment prior to beginning class. Completion of this certificate can be applied toward the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Vocational/Technical Studies.
