Degrees and Certifications:
Explore the field of welding!
The Welding Technology program is a brand new program for the 2017-2018 school year. Students learn the five primary areas of welding and can earn a certificate from the American Welders' Association (AWS).
Career & College Preparation
Graduates can enter the workforce, a trade school or college after graduation. Beginning in 2018-2019 students will also be able to earn college credit. While the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts an average job growth rate of 5% over the next few years specifically for welders, this doesn't account for welders in other occupations like structural iron and steel workers, a specialty that employs a large number of welders and has a job growth rate of 22% (BLS, 2017). In fact, by 2020 there will be an estimated 291,000 unfilled welding jobs in the United States.
New for 2019-2020
Students enrolled in Welding Technology will be eligible for up to 9 hours of dual credit through Metropolitan Community College.
