CAREER TYPE

Welder

Welding is the most common way of permanently joining metal parts and is used to construct and repair parts of ships, automobiles, spacecraft, and thousands of other manufactured products. Welders apply heat to the pieces of metal being joined and fuse them to form a permanent bond.

CAREER TYPE KEY FACTS:

Salary Range Potential: Average Salary :$28,000- $37,000.

Class Types:

  • •Properties of Metal • Cutting Techniques of Metal • Production Welding Techniques • Safety Training / Cranes / Rigging • Metallurgy / Vocabulary • Basic Math / Basic Fitting Principles

TRAINING CENTER PROGRAMS

Welding Technology*-Welder

The Journeyman Welder Program prepares students for entry-level employment in the welding field. Delta Tech’s welding program provides students the skills and hands-on training needed to become a proficient pipe welder using SMAW and TIG processes. Welding classes teach students MIG & flux core welding and provide students skills in pipe welding and manufacturing. Delta Tech’s welding training also teach field and shop safety, pipe fitting skills and basic blueprint readings. The Journeyman Welder Program offers a greater scope of welding processes and allows the student additional time to become polished in a certain specialty
