Whether you are a high school student looking to begin training for a career or a graduate looking for adult education services, consider the recently expanded Welding and Joining Technology program at Chattahoochee Technical College.
Our Welding and Joining Technology program has expanded to the Paulding Campus for Spring Semester 2015. By expanding the program, about twice as many students will be able to participate. In improving the availability of access to this program, we aim to cultivate a larger force of skilled workers who can in turn benefit the community with their services.
The popularity and success of the Welding and Joining Technology program may be due in part to the abundance of available jobs that can be claimed after graduation. When it comes to job outlook, the welding and joining program presents a promising future. The American Welding Society predicts that the demand for skilled welders in the U.S. could outpace supply by as many as 200,000 individuals, or more. Our graduates are equipped with a specialized skillset and certifications that give them a leg up in the job market and can be used to negotiate a higher salary. Training as a welder also presents you with the freedom to find work in any part of the country.
Our Welding and Joining Technology program presents students with a combination of information and hands-on experience in the field. Topics covered include electrodes, metals, and filler materials. Students will learn about tungsten inert gas, oxyfuel gas cutting, and plasma arc cutting through classroom lectures as well as practical hands-on training. Our Welding and Joining Technology program can be completed in four semesters.
