Welding Technician/AWS Certified Program

A Special Message from WCCC on Current Closure March 19, 2020
WCCC Adult Education is committed to continue providing education for our students as soon as it is reasonable from a public health perspective. Our program coordinators are working on ways to provide the hands-on learning in traditional and non-traditional ways. Please watch our website and social media for updates. 
This program is fully accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE). 
National outlook indicates a strong case for the need for welders. Long-term projections illustrate a shortfall of trained Welding Technicians. This number is growing at over 10% per year according to the National Center for Welding Education and Training. The career opportunities for Welding Technicians are nearly limitless, and a career in the Welding Industry provides for a dynamic and exciting career with many different job opportunities.

This 600-hour program correlates to the American Welding Society’s Guide for Training and Qualification of Personnel-Entry Level Welder. The student will gain the skills necessary to function in the welding industry.
