    Welding Program

     Welding for Beginners
    Course Description
    This course is for the beginning welder who would like to explore welding before committing to a longer, more rigorous program. It is also for the student who has some basic welding skills, but needs some guidance from our instructor and our professional lab while working on personal projects.  These courses are designed for both the beginning welder and the experienced welder looking to upgrade his or her skills.  The courses are self-directed welding experiences.  You can learn the particular process you need without spending time on skills outside of your focus.  You will begin welding the first night of class, as the class is almost entirely hands-on.
