Welding & Metal Fabrication

Welding & Metal Fabrication

The Welding/Metal Fabrication program prepares participants to work in a welding/metal fabrication environment. The program consists of eight 72-hour long courses, covering commonly used welding processes, metal fabrication, fitting, CNC operation, and a capstone project. Completion of all eight courses satisfy the State of Delaware approved related training requirement for the Welding/Metal Fabrication Apprenticeship. Students who complete this training and the associated 8,000 hours of on-the-job requirement are eligible to earn Journeyperson papers in the area welding.
