Combination & Pipe Welding Certificate

The four-semester Combination & Pipe Welding specialty focuses on the skills and knowledge required for the welder qualifica­tion test for the American Welding Society, Section IX of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Code and the American Petroleum Institute. Jobs in this area are plentiful.

This curriculum includes a wide array of subjects. Stu­dents gain extensive skills and knowledge through simu­lated industrial welder qualification tests with the following processes: SMAW, GMAW, FCAW (gas and self-shielded), GTAW and SAW. As a graduate, the demand is extensive. You may work as a welder in general fabrication shops, on construction sites, in pressure vessel shops or shipyards.

Most career opportunities for welders can include strenuous activities, and many employers now require full back X-rays as part of pre-employment physicals. The Welding Technol­ogy programs require students to demonstrate basic read­ing, writing and mathematical skills before enrolling.
