Welding & Metal Fabrication

Welding and Metal Fabrication is a one-year certificate program. Students develop the technical knowledge and trade skills to design, lay out, assemble, and fabricate metal projects. Welding is an important inter-related skill, and over 200 hours of hands on instruction familiarizes students with gas, electric, TIG, MIG and resistance welding techniques. Students learn the materials of the trade, the safe use of hand tools, equipment and machines, identifying fasteners, orthographic projection, patternmaking, and parallel and radial line development. Welding and metal fabrication graduates will be qualified for employment as sheet metal fabricators and welders.
