COLLEGE CREDITS - Tech Prep/CT2
Two-year program: grades 11-12
Welding technician students learn to proficiently produce welds of different arc welding processes along with background knowledge of machine settings, scientific theory, and blueprint reading. Students learn the same skills taught at the Lincoln School of Welding. Students have a high probability for high paying employment due to the increasing need for young welders in the industry.
The welding machines and equipment found in the shop in the new welding facility match professional equipment used in the field. Students utilize multiple tools to enhance fabrication skills while completing several, large scale community service projects and having the choice to compete in the SkillsUSA competitions. This program had the National Gold Medal Welder in 2016.
Students become effective and professional communicators by working closely with local business and industry to complete community service projects and be a part of the Gang for Good, a non-profit organization started by past students. Click here to go to Welding on the Willoughby-Eastlake site
