Meet the Faculty

Welcome to the Welding Trades Department 

The demand for skilled welding technicians is high and will continue to grow as the use of advanced technologies in the metal fabrication industry increases and as current workers retire from the workforce.   As a welder you will find a wide range of work opportunities in the manufacturing, construction and service industries. Our experienced and knowledgeable instructors will provide you with a thorough knowledge of welding materials, processes and applications as well as the safety practices and regulations required by industry. Our facilities include two shops - one dedicated to "C" level training, the other to "B" and "A" levels, upgrading and metal fabrication - where our students have the opportunity of working on a wide range of projects in a real world environment.
