Welding

Our Welding Program offers state-of-the-art equipment and safety. The program prepares students for steady, high paying jobs in a variety of industries that utilize welders.

Skilled, certified welders can find work on construction sites, in petroleum-related industries and in many jobs where heavy equipment is used. Welding, soldering and brazing workers held about 452,000 jobs in 2002 and of these, about two out of every three were in manufacturing.
