The Welding program provides a competency-based, individualized method of instruction. This program provides training at various levels of competency in the four most common methods of metal joining: shielded metal arc (SMAW), gas tungsten arc (GTAW), oxy-fuel (OFW), and gas metal arc (GMAW). Plasma and oxyacetylene cutting, both manual and semi-automatic are included in various courses.
