Welding as a Career? It's Amazing!

Welding is part of almost everything you can imagine. Bridges, planes, heavy equipment, oil rigs, farming, race cars, commercial buildings, nuclear facilities... the list is dramatic and diverse, and it just goes on and on. Even commercial divers are often called upon to learn underwater welding as part of their skillset. Welding offers a wealth of professional opportunities and can open doors to an exciting new future.

How do I start?

Austin Community College offers two different classes, both of which transfer to our Welding Technology credit department as technical electives.

Our first course (WLDG-1000) will introduce you to oxyacetylene and arc welding techniques. Safety is an important focus of this class.

Our second course (WLDG-1043) introduces the student to MIG, TIG, and flux-cored welding processes. It is required that you complete WLDG-1000, or obtain instructor approval to take this course.

Note: (CE) WLDG-1000 + (CE) WLDG-1043 = WLDG-1405 (4 Credits)

What are you waiting for?

If you enjoy working with your hands and are anxious to add to your talents, then contact our program coordinator. Whether you want to learn basic welding skills you can use in your personal life or you want to develop job skills for a new career, we can help you get started!
