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.
Continuous Program Improvement
MITT continuously reviews and improves programs to maintain relevance in the workplace and effective learning experiences for all students. Although the institution strives to have the website reflect the most current version of all programs, MITT reserves the right to change the program curriculum as necessary to meet industry and accreditation requirements. As a result, course information and learning outcomes may be adjusted prior to the scheduled course start date.
Due to the challenges raised by COVID-19, MITT reserves the right to alter course delivery methods and/or program durations. Course deliveries may require increased percentages of online/distance learning components, alternatives to work practicums, and extended program durations to accommodate physical distancing and work practicum placement restrictions. MITT will be providing an exceptional level of enhanced student and program supports to ensure this modified program experience continues to meet all required learning outcomes for your program.
