Welding

Today’s welding industry is a fast growing industry in which trained individuals are in high demand.  The welding industry is changing rapidly, and more skilled welders are needed in many different areas of the industry.  Cisco College’s welding certificate program is designed to help students develop the skills needed to enter the job market ready to go to work as a welder. We offer two level I certificates as well as one level II certificate.  These certificates consist of courses that provide intense training in the major welding processes such as shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), flux cored arc welding (FCAW), and gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW).  Certificates also include supportive courses in metallurgy; welding blue print reading and welding layout and fabrication. At the completion of each certificate, the student must pass a capstone procedural event designed to demonstrate mastery of the skills learned in that certificate.  Optional AWS (American Welding Society) procedural testing is available at a reduced cost if the student desires them.

Our welding program offers flexible scheduling, which enables students to register for full-time or part-time depending upon their needs.  We offer both day and evening courses.  All welding courses offer hands on approach allowing students more time to develop specific welding skills utilized in the welding industry.  Our classes are a combination of lecture/lab training.  All of our welding instructors are experienced welders and currently work in the welding industry because we believe it is very important that students learn from instructors who are knowledgeable in the welding processes they teach.
