Welding (CTWLDC)


This program has been replaced by Welding and Fabrication Principles Certificate (CTWLDS). Students currently enrolled need to complete it by the end of the Spring/Summer 2019 semester.

If you have questions about this program please contact a program advisor or contact a general student advisor.


This program prepares students for entry-level jobs involving gas welding, brazing, and various combinations of arc welding processes, where they work under the supervision of an experienced welding technician. The program also gives students a foundation for WCC's Advanced Certificate in Welding Mechanics.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”

—Wendy L., 48
