Welding Technology is a two-year program that includes both theoretical and practical training in basic and advanced welding techniques. Areas covered include shield metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, pipe welding, and fabrication.
Welding has become a very sophisticated and technical science that requires mental application as well as hands-on abilities. Students who complete the Associate in Applied Science degree learn welding skills, but also basic math, English, and other communication skills. CBC's welding training, plus general education requirements, prepare graduates for careers in today's construction trades and fabrications shops.
The program requires students achieve a minimum grade of 2.0 to be able to continue enrollment in major courses. The AAS degree also requires a minimum grade of 2.0 for each major course. A student who achieves a grade of 1.9 or lower in any required major course may repeat that course once to attempt to achieve a grade of 2.0 or higher. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the dean of the program prior to enrollment and must be based on extenuating circumstances.
Welding Intensive Courses
Columbia Basin College (CBC) is offering Welding Intensive courses geared towards helping people learn or enhance welding skills. This is a great opportunity for anyone with any skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) interested in learning to weld or advancing their skills.
Who should attend?
• Degree or non-degree seeking students
• Craftsmen, tradesmen, hobbyists, and artists at all skill levels
• Those who are currently employed and looking to upgrade or enhance their skills
• Structural and piping certification testing available (WABO, AWS, and ASME) at additional cost
You can choose to learn more about any of the following processes:
• Shielded metal arc (SMAW)
• Gas metal arc (GMAW)
• Flux cored arc (FCAW)
• Gas tungsten arc (GTAW)
• Oxy Acetylene
Location: CTE Building on CBC campus, Classroom 406C
Date/Time: Fall Quarter; Monday – Thursday from 1:00 – 4:50 p.m.
Equipment Requirements: Must bring own personal protection equipment and hand tools depending on the welding process selected. List available upon registration.
Register today! Space is limited, so reserve your spot today by calling 509.542.4804 or 509.544.4924!
Credits earned through these courses can be applied to a Certificate or Associate in Applied Science in Welding Technology degree at CBC. Welding support classes also available such as blueprint reading, fabrication techniques, welding inspection, and metallurgy at additional class times.
