Combo Welding, Technical Diploma

The Technical Diploma in Combo Welder program is a comprehensive course of instruction along the spectrum of welding processes.  Students gain hands-on training in the most common processes/types of welding:  SMAW/Stick, Flux-core, MIG, TIG, Open-root, and Pipe.  Within this program, students will also learn welding blueprint basics, construction fundamentals, and industrial & plant safety.  The American Welding Society (AWS) tests and certifies our student welders at the end of each term.  After successful completion of this program, a student is then recognized as a certified combo welder and can gain an advanced, professional welding position in the workforce throughout a wide range of industrial settings. Students must earn a grade of “C” or better in each course.
