The Welding Technology program is a one or two-year course of study that emphasizes “hands-on” experience in arc welding. The first half of the year concentrates on shop safety, weld joint design, arc welding, oxygen and acetylene welding and cutting, and the development of the manual skills necessary to weld in all positions.


The second year is available to those who have met the prerequisites and will focus on development of skills in Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), and special fabrication projects.


The WCTC welding program has an articulation agreement with Southern Maine Community College. Students will be given credit for WEL 100 Intro to Welding at SMCC. Students also have the opportunity to obtain their American Welding Society Certification (AWS).


A second year is available to students who pass the first year with a C grade or better.
