Graduates of the welding technology curriculum may be employed as entry-level technicians in welding and metalworking industries. Career opportunities also exist in construction, manufacturing, fabrication, sales, quality control, supervision, and welding-related self-employment.
SHC - Semester Hour Credits
At the end of each semester, students will take a qualification test (certification test). They will need to complete the Certification form that will be made available in the welding area by their instructors and submit the completed Certification form to their instructors. Students will be given the certification test during the last 2 weeks of the semester for a 16 week course and the last week of an 8 week course.
The welding technology program follows the AWS SENSE welding program. Upon completing and passing the requirements of SENSE, students will be required to pay the $15 fee for each of the certifications to be registered with the AWS SENSE program.
There are personal tools students will have to supply. Contact any of the welding instructors for a complete list of tools needed while completing the A.A.S. degree.
