The Welding Techniques Program is a full-time, one-year program which provides students with theoretical and practical aspects of the welding trade. The skills and knowledge gained from this program will help students meet the necessary requirements to obtain placement in either union or non-union jobs. Students perform welding and cutting using shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), oxy-fuel welding and cutting (OFW/OFC), plasma arc cutting (PAC), and carbon arc cutting with air/gouging (CAC-A).

Successful students have the opportunity to branch out into many different career paths in the welding industry after completion of the program including: welder, welder fitter trainee, apprentice welder, apprentice boilermaker, apprentice construction millwright, apprentice ironworker, apprentice industrial mechanic/millwright, apprentice pipe fitter, apprentice fitter, apprentice steamfitter, apprentice sheet metal worker, fabricator, and maintenance welder.
