What will I learn?

Ready to work with fire? Students in the welding program learn about welding machines, weld processes and hands-on welding proficiency. Students develop skills in the areas of blueprint reading, common cutting practices, and understanding of welding metallurgy. Students gain knowledge and skills necessary to prepare them for weld qualification to code specification(s).

Technology in the welding field is constantly improving, and staying up to date on current processes is necessary. Welders must stay current on welding certifications through the American Welding Society (AWS). 

The students in this program will be part of a cohort, remaining with same peers throughout the program. Students also have the opportunity to participate in national competitions such as Skills USA.

Students who are interested in studying welding at LCCC have two options:
