You want a hands-on career in welding? You’re going to need a hands-on training program. 

Our comprehensive program is designed to develop your skills in oxyacetylene (gas) and electric (arc) welding. Our classes are conducted in laboratories outfitted with modern industrial welding equipment. We provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to work with modern industrial welding equipment. We teach you to use advanced welding techniques and machines, including MIG (metal inert gas) and TIG (tungsten inert gas). The optional certificates provide a stepped path leading to the associate’s degree or certificates/certifications.

We have assembled what we think is the best structural welding (arc) military specification (tig) and sculptural welding program anywhere.

Welding Technology is a comprehensive program of studies designed to provide skill development opportunities in oxyacetylene (gas) and electric (arc)(mig) welding. Classes are conducted in laboratories that are equipped with modern industrial welding equipment, and skills development opportunities are afforded in advanced welding techniques utilizing tig and mig machines. The optional certificates provide a stepped path leading to the AAS degree and/or certificates/certifications.

This is a starting point for gathering WLD information and getting registered for class. At MCC we can do all the "paperwork" online if you wish.

Associates of Applied Science (AAS) in Welding

The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Welding program prepares students to work in the field using oxyacetylene (gas) and electric (arc) processes. The program emphasizes knowledge and skill required to work with modern industrial welding equipment using advanced welding techniques including mig (metal inert gas) and tig (tungsten inert gas).

Program Notes: Students must earn a grade of "C" or better for all courses within the program. + indicates course has prerequisites and/or corequisites.

Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Welding

The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Welding is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in the manufacturing and welding industries, as well as to provide updated skills to currently employed welders. Certification exams for the American Welding Society (A.W.S.) are incorporated into the advanced classes. Program completers may obtain positions in almost any industry requiring arc, metallic inert gas (mig), or tungsten inert gas (tig) welding skills.

Program Notes: Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in each course in the Required Courses area. + indicates course has prerequisite and/or corequisites.
