Welding 2

Our Welding 2 pipe welding program prepares students with the best best tools to take on challenging welding jobs, including pipefitter, pipeline welder, or boilermaker.

Students gain the skills to perform welding on various materials at defined positions, learn to effectively cut pipes using port-a-band and reciprocating saws, and become competent in assembling, fabricating, and installing a variety of metal pipes, pipe fittings, and related materials. 

Students become exceptionally well-versed in determining proper welds to use based on the type of materials involved and situation, and they gain the ability to read and interpret schematics, drawings, and blueprints to effectively plan and lay out a sequence of installations. 

Our coursework is aligned with the American Welding Society's SENSE Standards

Welding Level 2 tuition is $6,556         Starting salary for welding is $33,608 per year         The Welding Level 2 program takes 6 months to complete
