Description:Welding Techniques is a two-semester certificate program. Students learn and develop the skills and knowledge required to enter the welding, fabrication, and millwright industry. Through hands-on learning in our shops – equipped with welding, cutting, and testing equipment – graduates are pre­pared to meet industry standards and requirements. They learn to interpret blueprints, welding symbols, fitting techniques, semi automatic cutting, robotics, welding ferrous and non­ferrous metals, along with welding pipe, channel, and other structural forms. Students also learn ­structural layout and inspection of weld defects while developing skills required in the industry. Applicants with work experiences or other types of non-credentialed learning may be eligible for credits and are able to challenge the first level of the Welding Apprenticeship (fee pending).

Students are also able to obtain certification with the Canadian Welding Bureau (C.W.B.) in our test centre for the following ­welding certificates: Gas Metal Arc Welding (G.M.A.W.) Flat Position; Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (G.T.A.W.) Fillet; Shielded Metal Arc Welding (S.M.A.W.) Four Positions; Flux Cored Arc Welding (F.C.A.W.) Flat Position; Metal Cored Arc Welding (M.C.A.W.)
