Program Overview:
The Welding and Cutting certificate is designed to prepare welders, cutters, burners, and related personnel to meet the needs of the area and national industry. Jobs are available in local industries, construction, oil field work, private enterprises, and farming.

Registration Requirements:
Students eligible to register for the welding program must score at or above the 34th percentile on a placement test in the areas of English, reading and mathematics. As this is a limited enrollment program, students meeting this guideline will be enrolled based on their registration appointment date. If registering prior to the beginning of summer semester, students needing REM’s will be eligible to enroll in needed REM classes during the summer as well as welding classes for the fall semester.
