Industrial Welding Technology

Certificate of Completion

About the Program

Upon completion of this three-term certificate program, students will be qualified to test for certification to the American Welding Society (AWS) D1.1-06 Structural Steel and the AWS D1.3-08 Sheet Steel Welding Codes. Additionally, students will have a good foundation in structural steel fitting/layout, the basics of pipefitting, and the basics of sheet metal pattern development. Students will also be prepared with mathematics and communication skills, and be knowledgeable about the human relations necessary to become valuable employees in the industrial welding trades.

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 the Industrial Welding Technology Certificate of Completion are:

  • Demonstrate a commitment to a culture of safety.
  • Interpret and create mechanical blueprints to industry standards.
  • Layout and fabricate industry-quality fabrication projects.
  • Produce industry quality weldments on carbon steel plate in various positions and joint and groove configurations.

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.

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 Pathway 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.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate. Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher-level(s) based on designated placement score(s). Note, some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult an advisor with any program completion questions.
