Purpose: Instruction focuses on training students to produce acceptable, sound welds in all positions in oxyacetylene and electric arc welding and to select the correct filler rod to fit the job and the metal being welded. Upon completion of the program, students are prepared for the American Welding Society (AWS) structural stick welding certification; the AWS flux core MIG structural certification, and the State of Maine pipe certification. This qualifies graduates for employment as AWS certified welding operators in the construction, shipbuilding, fabricating, and metal and maintenance fields. Students will also be qualified to TIG weld stainless and carbon steel pipe.

Career Opportunities: Graduates of the welding technology program may find employment in shipbuilding, fabrication, construction, mechanical and maintenance industries.

Program Education Outcomes: Upon completion of the certificate curriculum in the Welding Technology program, the graduate is prepared to:

  • Demonstrate ability to produce acceptable, sound welds in all positions in oxyacetylene and electric arc welding.
  • Demonstrate ability to select the correct filler rod to fit the job and the metal being welded.
  • Demonstrate preparation for the American Welding Society structural certification and State of Maine pipe certification.
