The Welding program at Lorain High School prepares students for entry into a Welding Technology program at Lorain County Community College. Students who successfully complete the Welding program are eligible to earn college credit, while in high school, that apply seamlessly into a post-secondary program of interest in an Engineering & Manufacturing pathway. 


College Credit Opportunities 

Students in Tech Prep classes or programs are better prepared for college, have fewer tuition expenses, and reduce the amount of time it takes to earn their college degree. Students can earn college credit through three options: Bi-Lateral Articulation Agreements (Tech Prep); Ohio Career Technical Transfer Credit (CTAG); and College Credit Plus (CCP). If you complete both years of your College Tech Prep program, you could be eligible to earn the credits listed below:

Tech Prep Credit

  • WTEC 108, Oxy-Fuel Welding & Cutting (2)
  • WTEC 111, Welding Specifications & Print Reading (2)
  • WTEC 116, Basic Shielded Metal Arc Welding (3)
  • TECN 111, Technical Problem Solving (3)


CTAG Credit

College Credit Plus

Students can choose to take College Credit Plus courses at Lorain High School Titan College, LCCC’s main campus and outreach centers; or online. To create your schedule, talk to your high school guidance counselor or schedule a meeting with your CCP adviser.
