WELDING

WELDING AND FABRICATION

Students are jumping right into the action in the Welding and Fabrication program. After learning OSHA safety standards, students are working hands-on in our welding booths, practicing their stick welding or learning MIG and TIG welds. Students can also work on forge welding or program the plasma cutter for specific designs. Welders, especially those with a wide variety of skills, are needed both in commercial and industrial businesses.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

  • Become proficient at stick welding (shielded metal arc welding).

  • Use oxy-acetylene welding to fabricate projects.

  • Understand and read fabrication and blueprint reading.

  • Program and utilize the plasma cutter.

  • Focus on MIG and TIG (welding gas metal arc welding and tungsten inert gas welding).

  • Learn OHSA safety procedures.

  • Fuse creativity into your welding projects and complete school, community, and capstone projects.
