The Welding Technology Program trains students in multiple welding processes and is designed to prepare them for an entry level welding position in diverse fields. Safe and clean work habits are practiced and personal protective equipment is required. Career areas in which welders work include: mining, manufacturing, marine welding, ship building, metal art sculpting, machine shops, construction, railroads, automotive, as well as the aircraft, aerospace and renewable energy industries.
"I wanted to tell you how much I have appreciated your welding classes. I am a metal fabricator at Searles Valley Minerals and your classes have helped me excel in my trade." —Anthony Blanco, Student
The basic skills of welding are the same across industries, so welders can easily shift from one industry to another, depending on where they are needed most.
