About our Combination Welding Diploma

The Combination Welding program provides the student with the = knowledge and skills necessary for entry-level employment in metal fabrication and repair. Numerous industries rely upon welding in the manufacturing process. This program incorporates shop safety throughout the program to ensure safe practices, while completing required competencies. Topics include blueprint reading, measurement, cylinder safety, and plasma and oxy-fuel cutting. Students set up amperage adjustment and voltage polarity prior to welding mild steel. Students engage in in-depth study and practice of shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), flux core arc welding (FCAW), and gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW).

Graduates will have the opportunity to complete the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 10-Hour Safety Certification. Employment opportunities include shipyard metal fabrication/repair, highway construction, and building construction using ferrous and nonferrous metals.
