About the Welding Discipline

Welding is the application of heat to permanently join metal parts to repair and fabricate metal structures, machinery, and equipment. Skilled welders have experience using multiple welding machines including the arc welder, TIG (tungsten inert gas) welder and MIG (metal inert gas) welder. The Welding Certificate of Achievement can provide you with the skills and training to get a good-paying job and help you become certified by the American Welding Society. The Welding Technologies Certificate of Achievement is a 12-unit certificate intended to provide student completers with the safety, skills, and abilities to obtain entry-level positions in the many fields that require welding as part of their duties. Student completers will know how to weld in all positions (flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead) in ARC, MIG, and TIG.
