Industrial Welding Technology: Aluminum Boat Welder

Certificate of Completion

About the Program

Aluminum boat building is a staple industry in the Northwest and especially in the Rogue Valley. This three-term certificate will allow students to develop an understanding of basic boat building procedures and welding requirements. From basic vocabulary up to fabrication of scale and full-sized boats, students will learn side by side with industry professionals how to assemble aluminum watercraft commonly seen on the lakes, rivers and ocean bays in our region.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for industrial welding programs are:

Demonstrate commitment to a culture of safety in all college and work environments.

Produce industry quality weldments on carbon steel plate in various joint and groove configurations.

Processes include oxy fuel cutting, plasma arc cutting, SMAW and GMAW.

Produce industry-quality welds using GTAW and GMAW aluminum plate.

Develop a logical sequence of steps to foresee, troubleshoot, and resolve mechanical and process issues that may arise in the workplace.

Interpret and create mechanical blueprints to industry standards.

Layout and fabricate industry-quality fabrication projects using shearing and forming equipment.

Demonstrate and apply the professional standards of the industry.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over three years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements. College Now credit will be accepted in accordance with current agreement. Verified indus­try experience may be substituted for some coursework in accordance with college policy and the department chair’s approval.

Credits earned in the successful completion of Career Pathways certificates can be applied to other certificates and degrees in the Career Pathway. For more information, speak to a program advisor.

Graduation Requirements

Students must complete all courses in this program with a grade of “C” or better to receive their certificates. Certain required courses are graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.
