The Metal Fabrication & Welding program provides students with real world experience and the ability to graduate with certifications sought by employers. The curriculum offers practical skills in fabrication, layout, and welding with theory and welding practice. A wide range of skills surrounding welding are presented. The students will be trained in many forms of welding using up-to-date equipment. They include; Oxyacetylene Cutting, Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), as well as some soldering (silver soldering) and Arc Gouging and Cutting (air arc). Students are required to take the AWS Welding Certification Exam.
A student attending the Metal Fabrication/Welding Program for two years, who puts in a reasonable effort and maintains acceptable attendance, should be capable of passing the American Welding Society structural welding certification test. With the current demands for skilled welders, they should also be able to obtain gainful employment in the industry.
