  • Objectives
    In the Welder Fitter certificate program, you will develop the knowledge and skills required in the fabrication and welding of metals. You will spend much of your time applying your skills in well-equipped full-sized metal fabrication and welding shops and metal testing laboratory. Here you will learn to follow metal fabrication projects from the engineering drawing stage, through cutting and forming processes, to the welding and inspection phase. You will also have the opportunity to use conventional and computer controlled fabrication equipment. As a student, you will learn to interpret prints, cut, form, fit and weld a variety of materials including ferrous and nonferrous metals in sheet, plate, pipe and structural shop forms.
