George Brown’s Welding Techniques program prepares students with practical, hands-on experience that applies the technical theory and elements of the welding field. Students articulate their technical and essential employability skills through an e-portfolio, based on skill development throughout the program.

At the end of this intense, two-semester program, students will have the opportunity to challenge the shielded metal arc weld test, in accordance with CSA W47.1/W59 standards, in a position(s) of their choosing through the Canadian Welders Bureau. (This test will be voluntary and at an extra cost to the student.)

This experiential program will provide you the skills to master five of the most common types of welding processes: Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Plasma Arc and Oxyfuel Cutting and Fabrication.

What You’ll Learn

  • Perform work responsibly and in compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and industry processes and procedures, including demonstrating learned knowledge of WHMIS.
  • Interpret engineering drawings and blueprints to produce basic graphics and welding projects as required by industry.
  • Select, plan and demonstrate sustainable metal fabrication operations using industrial metal fabrication machinery and emerging technologies.
  • Perform basic technical measurements and welding functions accurately, using appropriate equipment and welding techniques.
  • Create welds on various types of materials and joints in the major welding positions to industrial standards and codes.
  • Use shop tools and equipment to manufacture, assemble, maintain and repair components according to required specifications and industry standards.
  • Interact effectively and professionally in shop environments, both independently and with fellow workers and other tradespeople.
  • Assess weld quality and implement corrective action where required to follow quality control and quality assurance procedures and meet organizational standards and requirements.
  • Create a professional development plan that addresses one’s strengths and areas for growth in the greater context of the welder profession.

Teacher was excellent and coaching modules were well organized. George Brown campus is in the heart of Toronto. Feels like a real college with many student services, restaurants and places to study. I did my course online but I am going to continue in-person as I miss the deeper interaction with professor and other learners.

This program is all hands-on all the time. The lessons and strategies I learned in the classroom helped prepare me for the exact challenges I faced in the classroom. Instructors were dedicated and empathetic. Best of all, there were more available field placements than there were students. Early childhood educators can't go wrong at George Brown in my opinion.
