All of the courses in the Certified Welder program are applicable to the Welding Technology Certificate and the Integrated Metals AAS degree. Welder certification to American Welding Society (AWS) code specifications in a particular welding process and position is often what is needed for one to become employed as a welder. Many students enroll for this evening program option upon recommendation of their employer to obtain a welder certification, resulting in a job position upgrade and/or wage increase. This evening program is designed specifically to focus on welder certification in one or more welding processes and positions. This program is designed for fall term entry. Entry during winter term may delay program completion by one or more terms and is based on individual qualifications as determined by Welding Technology instructors and completion of admission criteria. No students will be accepted into this program for a spring term start. This is a limited-entry program. Students must apply and be accepted into the program to have their major changed to Welding Technology certificate. MHCC Welding Technology celebrates and endorses the efforts of our local high school students interested in becoming trained as welders. Program specific laboratory training at the high school level earns college credit applicable toward approved Integrated Metals certificates and degrees.
