Welding offers a great deal of experiential learning and prepares students for a multitude of job opportunities upon completion of the courses. Welding is the most common method of joining metal parts -- in vehicles, appliances, furniture, buildings, highways, bridges and more. Some say it is an art; others say it is a craft. But all agree it is a high-demand, necessary 'link' in industrial settings. Our program provides opportunities to master welding strategies including Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Metal Inert Gas (MIG) and Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) processes. These courses will also help you develop skills and knowledge in oxygen-acetylene cutting, welding and brazing, and metal fabrication, all of which are relevant to the demands of a multitude of industries.
Trained welders are a key link within a team of other professionals on the job, so we emphasize teaching you the skills necessary to work harmoniously and safely with your fellow workers. Dual credits can be earned through Bluegrass Community and Technical College through this course of study.
