Welding Technology - Technical Certificates


This program is designed to teach specific skills in all aspects of the welding trade, including blueprint reading, metallurgy, oxy-acetylene and semi-automatic cutting, brazing, and industry standard welding processes in a standard set of positions. Students learn welding processes to work with cast iron, brass, aluminum, stainless steel and alloy metals. Apprenticeship opportunities with over 10 skilled craft unions are available through the Construction Apprenticeship Tech Prep Consortium for graduates.

American Welding Society certification is available by appointment during the day at TEC.
Program completers will be prepared for AWS certification in most processes. Individuals who have welding experience but desire AWS certification should call 913-627-4147 to make arrangements for evaluation and testing or review sessions.
