WeldingBuilding Systems, Construction, and Manufacturing
Welding education requirements vary by employer. Some employers require welders to have a high school diploma and require completion of employer-based welding tests. Other employers look for a certificate or undergraduate degree from a technical school, vocational school or community college. Welders may also learn techniques through welding apprenticeships. Welders today rely on cutting edge technology in their everyday work. Having a transformative effect on the trade, technology has rapidly expanded and improved welding practices. From the development of arc welding to the refinement of laser cutting, welding is continually evolving.
Welding is more than just joining two pieces of metal together. It’s considered an art by those in the field and is an important part of any major construction project.
You’ll train in all phases of combination welding and code certification requirements, including electric arc, TIG, MIG, metal theory, oxy-fuel practice and mild steel and plasma arc cutting.
