Welding is a highly skilled industry that can take you places all over the world. From ladders to aircraft carriers, from NASCAR to national defense, and from the laboratory to sales and repair, the varied welding industry impacts virtually every industry. Technology is creating more uses for welding in the workplace. For example, new ways are being developed to bond dissimilar materials and non-metallic materials, such as plastics, composites, and new alloys. Also, advances in laser beam and electron beam welding, new fluxes, and other new technologies and techniques all point to an increasing need for highly trained and skilled workers. This program utilizes NCCER’s four-level curriculum covering topics such as Oxyfuel Cutting, Welding Symbols, and Stainless-Steel Groove Welds. NCCER’s curriculum also correlates to the AWS standards and guidelines for an Entry Welder. The career tech student organization for Welding is SKILLSUSA.
