Description: 

The welding program at TMCC provides students with a competency based curriculum that teaches the basic welding skills for entry-level jobs necessary for the demands of the welding industry. The Welding Technology program uses a cohort model of instruction that provides students the opportunity to complete their program of study through hands-on learning in a modern, well-equipped and safe learning laboratory. The Welding Technology program is designed to train students to become the best welders they can be. To meet the advanced technological demands that are evolving in welding, students will be using our Virtual Reality VRTEX 360 welding simulators that will train skilled welders faster as well as recruit the next generation of welders. Students learn to utilize safe working techniques and through a curriculum built on stackable credentials, students will earn OSHA certification. In addition, students will have the option to take the industry recognized American Welding Society (AWS) certification.
