Welding - Combination

The Combination Welding program is designed to provide the student with the necessary knowledge and skills appropriate for employment in the areas of electric and oxyacetylene welding. Students completing this program should have sufficient preparation to become certified welders.

Welding - (Less than One Year Certificates)
Arc, Gas, Tig, Pipes, and Mig

  • Arc - This less-than-one-year certificate is a study of welding processes used by industry concentrating on metallic arc welding on flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead plates.

  • Gas - This less-than-one-year certificate is a study of the techniques, procedures and uses of oxyacetylene welding and cutting equipment

  • Tig - Tig welding is a gas-arc welding process using an inert gas to protect the weld zone from the atmosphere. The heat for welding is a very intense electric arc which is struck between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and work piece. Tig welding is more complex than regular arc welding. More emphasis is placed on the technology of metals. The student should be competent in arc and gas welding and have knowledge of metals, their properties and characteristics.

  • Pipe - This less-than-one-year certificate is designed to teach up-hill and down-hill pipe welding-fixed position.

  • Mig - This less-than-one-year certificate provides the techniques of metallic inert gas (semi-auto welding). Concentration is on a flat bend test horizontal, vertical up-hill and down-hill and overhead welding.
