Welder - Day Program
Curriculum will consist of AWS & NCCER materials. Students will be registered in the NCCER Program for completed modules. For an additional fee, depending on the number and types of tests desired, AWS certification testing and certification will be offered to students through the SC Technical College system. Students, who pass the certification testing, will receive nationally recognized and documented AWS certifications from an AWS accredited State Technical College for the skills they have mastered. There is an additional 4 weeks (160 hours) of optional training available to allow students to gain skills in pipe welding or further enhance existing skills. Students may be able to obtain a job at the successful completion of any of the 3 levels and not have to attend class as long to find work. Of course, the more training the student receives the more skills the student will obtain and he or she will be able to enter the job market at a higher pay level. Personal equipment needs will be discussed at the first class (an additional student cost of $300.) Estimated program cost: $ 7,285
The cost of books and materials may not be included in this estimate. Check the 'Materials list' hyper link on the class search results page for details on each course.
