Program Overview

The Welding Fabrication Year 1 program introduces students to the essential welding processes, tools and procedures. You’ll learn rigging procedures, gouging and cutting, blueprint reading and basic and intermediate welding skills. Emphasis is placed on demonstrating these skills through extensive training in our workshop.

The West Prince Campus is a Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) test centre, which gives you the option to participate in weld testing.

Upon completion of Welding 1, you may opt to continue to build on your skills in the second year of the Welding Fabrication program offered at our Georgetown Centre.
