Welding Technologies I
The Welding Technologies program at the Technical Education Center prepares students for entry-level job skills in the Welding field or participation in a community or technical college program. The instructional format is "self-paced", thus allowing students to progress at their own speed. Instruction is provided in safety, cutting and bending steel, shielded metal ARC welding, gas metal ARC welding (wire feed), gas tungsten ARC Welding (TIG), oxyacetylene torch cutting, project layout and construction, daily maintenance of shop and equipment and employability skills. Students are required to complete welding and cutting operations as well as a required project. New to the program are American Welding Society Certification tests available to students in ARC, MIG, and Flux Core ARC Welding. If a student passes any of these certification tests he/she will receive a nationally recognized certificate which is valuable for securing employment. Time in this course is split between lecture and hands-on activities including the completion of required welding operations, a required project and a project of the students choosing. Students enrolling in the Welding Technologies Program will also receive an introduction to basic Machining principles including foundational work on the mill and lathe.
Welding Technologies II
Prerequisite: Welding Technologies I
Students enrolled as a second year student in the Welding Technologies program will receive advanced training in 5 welding processes and will participate in the completion of advanced projects. In some cases students will be encouraged to participate in advance student competitions. Students may also qualify for a work-based learning placement depending on their skill level and availability of placements.
