Program Overview:
The Welding 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.

Program and/or Course 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. Students meeting this guideline will be enrolled based on their registration appointment date. If registering prior to the beginning of summer semester, students needing REMs will be eligible to enroll in needed REM classes during the summer as well as welding classes for the fall semester. If REM courses are not successfully completed in the summer semester, the student will be withdrawn from all welding classes.
