Pipe welding with stainless steel electrodes, low-alloy steel electrodes, more advanced blueprint reading and welding metallurgy, etc., are covered. Completion of this program along with the required work experience component should provide the graduate with the broadest base of skills and employment opportunities in the diverse metal joining industries.

Theory and practical modules include:

  • Shielded Metal Arc Welding
  • Gas Tungsten Arc Welding
  • Welding Metallurgy III
  • Blueprint Reading III
