Metal Fabrication/Welding Certificate
The metal fabrication/welding certificate teaches welding skills in the areas of shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), flux core arc welding (FCAW), gas and tungsten arc welding (GTAW), oxy-fuel welding (OFW), oxy-fuel cutting (OFC), and plasma arc cutting (PAC). The students also will receive training in safety and basic blueprint reading, and metallurgy. This certificate gives the student the skills needed to successfully enter the field of welding.
Suggested/Sample Course Sequence
The sequence taken by the student may vary depending on prerequisites, course availability, and personal/ professional responsibilities.
