Welding and Fabrication

This is a one-year program that teaches students various welding and cutting processes: Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW), spot welding, oxy-fuel welding, brazing, plasma cutting and carbon arc gouging. Fabrication tools used include the drill press, shears, power shears, benders, brakes, and CNC plasma cutters. Students will use metal-working, welding, and cutting processes to fabricate projects. Students who have successfully completed year one and are interested in Advanced Training may apply for a 2nd year in Welding or enroll in another MOCC Program to add to their technical skill-set. The second year is for senior students and entrance is by application only. The WE Advanced Training during the 2nd year will focus on Work Based Learning (WBL), Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs, and/or more in-depth welding processes. Students may earn the following certifications: American Welding Society (ASW) Sense Level 1 and Qualification Record of Welding (4 different welds). * Programs designated with an (*) after the title are programs where second-year students may be able to apply to be placed in cooperative Work Based Learning (WBL) positions at a regional employer.
