Welding Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Welders use a variety of equipment to apply intense heat to metal for the purpose of joining them together or for cutting or trimming them to desired sizes or shapes. Manual welding is done under the complete control of the welder. Semiautomatic welding is done using equipment such as an electrode‐feeding gun, which requires some control and manipulation by the welder. Automatic welding is done by a machine, which performs most of the welding functions under the attention of a welding operator.

 

Students must have an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher in order to earn a degree or certificate.

Gainful Employment Disclosure

The Department of Education passed an initiative designed to protect students from taking on unsustainable debt in order to pay for their education. The data is provided for students of WSCC so students can make an informed choice about a program and the potential for gainful employment of that program. For WSCC, these are programs that are less than an associate’s degree. Click here to view the Welding Gainful Employment information.
