Welding is the most common way of permanently joining metal parts. Typically, heat is applied to the metal pieces to be joined, melting the parts, and fusing them to form a permanent bond. Because of its strength, welding is used to construct and repair parts of ships, automobiles, heavy equipment, and thousands of other products. Once you’ve completed your certification, you’ll be ready for a range of entry-level welding fabrication jobs. You can also complete the first year of your Belmont College Associates degree.

As a welder, your skills will be in high demand everywhere from construction to manufacturing, even underwater. In this program, you’ll learn advanced welding classes and safety and business classes to prepare for a supervisory/management position—or even owning your own business.
