Certificate: Welding

The Welding Technology Program is committed to train students to become the best welders they can be. The field of welding continues to evolve with significant advances in technology. In our state-of-the-art welding shop, students will begin using our Virtual Reality VRTEX 360 Simulators. With the use of the VRTEX 360ís we will be able to train skilled welders faster as well as recruit the next generation of welders. With the use of the VRTEX 360 simulators, students will learn proper body positions, gun and rod angles, travel speeds, gun and rod positions, and overall welding techniques. The VRTEX 3690 Virtual Reality systemís make it possible to learn how to weld in an eco-friendly manner. When students are ready, they will go into our state-of-the-art welding shop and weld on their own using a live welder. Students will learn to utilize safe working techniques and practices. Students will also be trained to recognize and understand welding symbols and read blueprints. Welding has become a dominant force in virtually every aspect of life, and with the continued advances the industry is experiencing, welding will provide endless opportunities for those on the cutting edge.
