Precision Welding Certificate

The Precision Welding Certificate program provides an individual with a broad overview of related welding skills and techniques as well as the specific skills necessary to be successful in an Advanced Manufacturing environment. Through a combination of classroom and laboratory training, students will learn the applications of SMAW (commonly called stick), GMAW, and GTAW welding, as well as the necessary safety, blueprint reading and practical application skills needed for employment in the industrial workforce.  This program includes additional time spent preparing the student for the D17.1 American Welding Society (AWS) certification in GTAW.  It also includes an opportunity to practice the skills learned throughout the school year in a Co-op or Capstone program over the summer.  Faculty and staff will provide support, but the responsibility for finding a suitable Co-op work experience lies with the student and not WMCC (note: a Co-op is not required).
