• Welding & Manufacturing


    Welding is the most common way to join metal parts.  Heat is applied to the pieces to be joined, melting and fusing them to form a permanent bond.  Because of its strength, welding is used to construct and repair parts of ships, automobiles, spacecraft, and thousands of other manufactured products.


    Included in the curriculum for advanced students are arc welding on plate or pipe, Mig and Tig welding on hard to weld metals, more detailed blueprint reading, learning welding codes, and manufacturing skills for the welding industry.


    The welding class is open to High School juniors, seniors, and adult students.  Students will begin their training with Welding 1 and after successful completion will advance to Welding 2.


    Students will learn basic welding techniques, including:

    • Oxyfuel Welding
    • Cutting
    • Electrical Arc Welding in all positions
    • Basic Project Layout and Design
    • Blueprint Reading
    • Mig
    • Tig
    • Computer Aided Plasma Cutting
    • Manufacturing Processes and Skills
