All enrolling students should possess the fundamental welding skills in the major processes before they choose to enroll in a Process Specific/Advanced Technique Course. These courses are specifically designed for experienced/professional welders who are seeking training in the advanced techniques required to upgrade skill level and qualify themselves for additional career opportunities.
Standard Welding (180 hours) is designed to improve the welder's skills in Shielded Metal Arc Welding in all four positions on carbon steel plates.
Advanced Welder Qualification–Pipe (120 hours) is designed to develop or improve pipe welding skills utilizing the Shielded Metal Arc or Gas Tungsten Arc Welding processes and prepare the welder to pass a Pipe Welding Qualification Test.
Gas Tungsten Arc Welding - GTAW or TIG (60 hours) is for professional welders seeking specialized training in Gas Tungsten Arc Welding on materials of varying thickness and joint designs in all positions.
Gas Metal Arc Welding - GMAW or MIG (60 hours) is for professional welders seeking instruction in Gas Metal Arc Welding on materials of varying thickness and joint designs in all positions.
Flux Cored Arc Welding - FCAW (60 hours) includes instruction in Flux Cored Arc Welding on materials of varying thickness and joint designs in all positions.
