Welding Technology ITC
Welding Technology is a participating organization of the American Welding Society’s SENSE (Schools Excelling through National Skill standards Education) Program. This program is designed to provide training in a sequential manner for various welding processes. All skills and lab assignments are performance based using standards assigned by the prevailing industrial welding codes. Safety, care, use, and adjustment of the welding lab equipment is stressed in each of the classes. Included in each 30 hour week is study in welding theory and related practical science, and applying this knowledge in the laboratory.
All graduates are given the opportunity to take the unlimited thickness, all position, welder certification test at no cost to them.
Entrance requirements for AAS degree and Certificate seeking students in the Welding program include:
- Compass score of 46 or higher in Math (Algebra), or qualify for MTHPT-137.
- Enrollment priority will be determined by the date and time in which the student is advised by faculty in the program.
To help insure the success of welding students, the student must meet or exceed the minimum Compass test scores in both Reading and Writing. They must also score high enough to be placed in MATH-123 before entering the program or to be placed on the waiting list.
