Overview

In the Welding and Fabrication Technician diploma program, students will develop the broad base of knowledge and skills required for the layout, preparation, forming, fitting, joining, and inspection of welded fabrications.

Students will have the opportunity to study in the outstanding modern facilities at the Cambridge campus, where they will spend much of their time developing and applying their skills in a well-equipped, full-sized welding and fabrication shop. Students learn to follow metal fabrication projects from the computer-aided engineering drawing (CAD) stage, through the cutting and forming processes of piece parts, to the fitting, welding and inspection of fabrications. Students also have the opportunity to use conventional and computer numerical controlled (CNC) fabrication equipment programmed through the use of computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software.

Students will also have the opportunity to develop welding skills with the common arc welding processes such as Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW or stick), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW or MIG), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW or TIG). Opportunities to challenge welding skills qualification tests as required by the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) and or the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) will be provided. (Extra fees payable to these external weld testing authorities will apply; these tests are optional.)

Career opportunities

Graduates will be well-suited to enter the welding and fabrication industry as qualified welders and fitters and also seek opportunities to become an apprentice in several related Red-Seal trades such as Welder (456A), Metal Fabricator – Fitter (437A), Construction Boilermaker (428A), or Ironworker (420A).

With work experience and additional testing, graduates may earn certification with the Canadian Welding Bureau as a welding inspector or welding supervisor.
