360 Hour Comprehensive Welding Program

Monday through Friday   9:00 to 3:30 for 12 Weeks

In the 360 hour program, students receive instruction in all of the welding processes we offer at the school – GMAW, FCAW, GTAW, and SMAW. In addition, students are also trained in oxy fuel and plasma cutting, carbon arc gouging, and the use of basic hand tools (grinders, fit-up tooling, etc.). The goal of this course is to have students prepared enough so that they are "ready to go" on the first day of employment.

Students may test for the AWS D1.1 Structural Steel certifications in SMAW and/or FCAW by the end of the program (optional – additional fee required). Individuals who exhibit sound welding skills are encouraged to take one or both of the certification tests.
