The Industrial Welding program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to design and build products by cutting and joining materials using ferrous and non-ferrous materials.

You will gain welding knowledge and skills through the Industrial Welding program with hands-on experience designing and fabricating projects by cutting and joining materials using ferrous and non-ferrous materials. The current welding and fabrication equipment used simulates an industrial shop environment, preparing you for apprenticeship. And it’s flexible - we offer this as a daytime or evening program.

Your accredited program consists of 9 core credits, providing theory and practical applications and is associated with the Canadian Welding Association, Canadian Welding Bureau and the Department of Labor. Your evaluation is done through written tests in welding, power tools, blueprint reading, and math with practical evaluations conducted using Canadian Welding Bureau and Department of Labor procedures and standards.

You should possess good manual dexterity, a mechanical aptitude and the ability to problem solve.
