The Welding curriculum is a dual-enrollment program designed for students who seek a background in the basic principles and practices of welding.
Students receive training in theory and practice relating to OXY/ACTY gas welding & cutting, SMAW, FCAW, GTAW, and GMAW welding processes in accordance with current industrial practices. The content is based upon the studies and recommended practices of the American Welding Society (AWS) and other welding authorities.
Each major process is presented as a core program, providing a comprehensive treatment of equipment, filler rod material, joints and welds, weld testing, safety, welding symbols, and the fundamentals of print reading.
Students who complete the welding program will leave YCHS/FDJTC with a basic welding certificate from York Technical College.
