Award: Certificate

Program Head: Michael Bryant

Length: Two semesters (One year full-time study)

Purpose: To meet industry’s demand for different types of welding training, the Welding program is creating two parallel certificates: one in Industrial/Structural Welding, the other in Pipe Welding. The Pipe Welding certificate meets a growing industry demand for pipe welders.

Admission Information: Although there are no testing requirements before enrolling in a welding course, students whose placement test scores indicate the need to increase their level of proficiency in reading, writing and/or mathematics will be required to take appropriate developmental courses before enrolling in related courses, such as blueprint reading. Enrolling in developmental courses may increase the length of time necessary for completing the chosen course or program of study, but will enhance the student’s preparation for college-level coursework and increase the chances for successful attainment of academic, occupational and personal goals.

Admission Requirements: Students must meet the general admission requirements of the College. Successful completion of the curriculum requires proficiency in communications, an understanding of applied mathematics, a moderate level of dexterity and average mechanical aptitude. Persons who have completed a high school welding program or industrial courses in welding may receive credit and/or advanced placement upon demonstration of proficiency.

Graduation Requirements: Students must achieve an overall minimum 2.0 GPA in the curriculum’s applicable courses.

Related Certificate: Industrial/Structural Welding

Minimum Credit Hours for Degree: 43
