The Welding Operator One-Year Certificate program is designed to provide you with the specialized knowledge and skills to be prepared for entry-level employment as a welding technician. As a welding technician, you’ll inspect welded joints to ensure company standards, national code requirements and customer job specifications are met. You’ll also assist welding engineering personnel in development and application of new and improved welding equipment, welding techniques, procedures and practices, and specifications for heat treating.

An emphasis is placed on computer-aided manufacturing and automated welding systems. In addition, you’ll learn about new techniques that are being developed to weld dissimilar materials and non-metallic materials such as plastics and composites including laser beam and electron beam welding, new fluxes and other technologically advanced processes.

You may choose to continue your education by applying the credits earned in this program to an Associate of Applied Science in Welding Technology.
