Description: 

The Welding Technology department is committed to training 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 begin by using our Virtual Reality VRTEX 360 Simulators. The VRTEX 360s prepare students to become skilled welders, learning proper body positions, gun and rod angles and positions, travel speeds, and overall welding techniques in an eco-friendly manner. Students apply the knowledge and skills learned on the simulators to an actual state-of-the-art welding shop, using a live welder. In addition, students will apply safe working practices and read welding symbols and 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. Upon successful completion of the Welding Technology certificate program, students may be eligible to become AWS Certified.
