WVC Industrial Technology - Welding and Fabrication

Welding is considered a high demand occupation that provides a living wage, with projected short- and long-term growth in Chelan and Douglas Counties, according to the Washington State Employment Security Department.

WVC’s Industrial Technology program offers a welding and fabrication 55-credit certificate. This training provides you with the skills to perform welding duties in construction, repair, maintenance and fabrication fields. Hands-on instruction is included in core welding techniques—including MIG and TIG and pipe welding—and in metal fabrication with a variety of materials. Safe working habits are emphasized in lecture format and in demonstrations. An industrial safety course includes training and certification in first aid/CPR, flagging, forklift/industrial truck operation, OSHA-10 and hazardous materials awareness. Students also receive practice in preparation for the Washington Association of Building Officials (WABO) welding certification exam.
