Certificate in Welding

Launch a Welding Career in Less Than a Year 

Welding is used in shipbuilding, aerospace applications, and thousands of other manufacturing activities. Welding is also used to join beams in the construction of buildings, bridges, power plants, and refineries. The basic skills of welding are the same across industries, so welders can easily shift from one industry to another, depending on where they are needed most.

The Charter College Welding Certificate program includes hands-on cutting, welding, layout, and fitting skills that are presently used and practiced in today's welding workforce. Our welding certificate program covers how the welding processes work and why certain welding processes are used. Graduates are prepared to seek entry-level employment in fabrication shops and in the construction field.

If you’re looking for hands-on vocational training, contact Charter College today.
