Not only will students learn various welding processes and positions, but they will also learn safety standards, measurement, project planning, blueprint reading, code interpretation, standard terminology and more.


According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median annual salary for welders, cutters, solderers and brazers in the United States was $48,940 in May 2023.26 This means half earned more and half earned less.
