Entry-Level Welder CSC

For related WEL programs, see Related Programs Listing .

Purpose: The career studies certificate program is a response to the non-conventional short-term program of studies needed by many adults within the college’s region. It offers a series of specialized program options which represent a wide variety of adult career and academic interest course areas. The options within this program are intended to represent the minimum amount of college course work considered representative of these fields of study. Each of the program options is designed as a distinct “mini-curriculum” within a broader range of adult educational possibilities.

Admission Requirements: Applicants should meet the general requirements for admission to the college. Placement tests may be required in some areas.

The program develops the basic skills for entry-level jobs in the welding field. The curriculum contains competencies of the American Welding Society’s (AWS) SENSE program which is an industrial standard for welder education and training. The framework for all of the courses includes specific weld process training, thermal cutting processes, quality control, industrial safety, shop fabrication equipment and manufacturing assemblies from drawings. Certifications for various welding qualifications are offered. All courses are transferable to the Advanced Welder CSC  and the Welding Technology Certificate  .
