Do you like to make things with your hands? Do you crave the satisfaction that comes from creating sound structures? Can you see yourself working on a team to build pipelines, refineries, skyscrapers, and bridges? Welders create foundations that make up the infrastructure of all things steel, aluminum, and pipe-based.
The one-year certificate in welding technology provides a student with specific training for structural and pipe welding and aluminum welding certification. Students gain comprehensive training in the latest welding technology, blueprint reading, layout, and fabrication.
The one-year welding certificate can be earned at KRC, but general classes that are required for this program can be taken through any of KPC's campuses or online.
