Welding as a Career is 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.
About the Program
Austin Community College offers two different classes, both of which transfer to our Welding Technology credit department as technical electives.
The Welding CE Certificate consist of two (2) required course sections, taken in the following order:
- WLDG-1000 Introduction to Welding
- WLDG-1043 Intermediate Arc Welding
Our first course (WLDG-1000) introduces you to oxyacetylene and arc welding techniques. Safety is an important focus of this class. Our second course (WLDG-1043) focuses on 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)
