2 Years - Programs


Programs that can be completed in two years:
 
Based upon which area of emphasis or industry you wish to pursue, there are four basic choices that help fine tune that goal. 
 
Option #1  Pipe Welding 
Option #2  Metal Fabricator/Welder 
Option #3  Industrial Welder
Option #4  Laddered Specialization
 
 
Associate in Science Degree and Certificate of Achievement: Welding Technology
 
Welding Technology is a career technical education program designed to prepare students for a variety of entry-level positions in today’s welding and fabrication related industries. Course offerings range from very basic welding fundamentals to the most technically advanced.
 
Students gain skillfulness in safety procedures, applied theory, metal fabrication, and related welding processes. Emphasis is placed on individual instruction. Instructors are AWS Certified Welding Inspectors/Educators. Welding curriculum is aligned with the American Welding Society SENSE Entry Welder Program. Students can earn welder certifications in accordance with the American Welding Society (AWS), The Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety (LADBS), and The American Society of Mechanical of Engineers (ASME).
 
Upon successful completion of the program, students are prepared to enter into the following career opportunities: welder, welding inspector, welding technician/fitter, pipe fitter/welder, and metal fabricator.
 
Degree and Certificate Student Learning Outcome:
Students will be able to demonstrate proficiency in industry recognized principles and practices as they apply to today's welding and metal fabrication industries.
