The Welding Technology Certificate provides state-of-the-art training on common welding processes (Shielded Metal Arc [SMAW], Metal Inert Gas [MIG], Tungsten Inert Gas [TIG], oxy-acetylene and plasma cutting) and extensive skill building in each welding position. Additionally, American Welding Society (AWS) Certification for structural plate and pressure pipe is available. The certificate may be used as one of the technical disciplines required for the AAS in General Technology.

The Welding Certificate of Proficiency provides concentrated training to develop welding skills as expeditiously as possible. Only welding courses are included in the certificate. Courses in this certificate can be applied towards the Technical Certificate in Welding or as one of the technical disciplines required for the AAS in General Technology.

The Certification Welding Certificate of Proficiency documents advanced welding skills demonstrated by students in achieving industry standard welding certifications. Courses in this certificate can be used as one of the technical disciplines required for the AAS degree in General Technology.

The Certificate of Proficiency in Gas Metal Arc Welding provides concentrated training to develop advanced skill techniques in MIG and Flux Core Welding. Students will also perform inspection on equipment (drive rollers, contact tips, and gauges) and accessories (clothing, hand tools, and base metal) on a daily basis to ensure safe operation techniques. Courses in this certificate can be applied towards the Technical Certificate in Welding or as one of the technical disciplines required for the AAS in General Technology.

The Certificate of Proficiency in Shielded Metal Arc Welding emphasizes advanced techniques in MIG and Flux Core Welding. Proper operation of FCAW and GMAW equipment will be emphasized. Courses in this certificate can be applied towards the Technical Certificate in Welding or as one of the technical disciplines required for the AAS in General Technology.
