The Welding Technology program at Marion Technical College prepares students for employment in a variety of welding-related occupations in the manufacturing, industrial, or utility industries. The program provides a daytime and evening program. Students may apply for the 11-month daytime program, or 17-month evening program. Both programs follow the same curriculum and standards, but offer different schedules to better meet the needs of Marion Technical College students.
The Welding Technology program teaches students basic to intermediate skills of four major welding processes, Shielded Metal Arc (SMAW), Flux-Cored Arc (FCAW), Gas Metal Arc (GMAW), and Gas Tungsten Arc (GTAW) welding processes. This course also includes blueprint reading and basic principles of pipe welding. The program combines classroom theory, and hands-on learning to provide a comprehensive training experience.
This program has been offered by MTC since 2008. This is a great time to enter the welding field, as many career opportunities are available both locally, and nationwide.
This program is eligible for Veteran’s Administration Education Benefits.
