About the program:

Welding is the most common way of permanently joining metal parts. Heat is applied to the pieces to be joined, melting and fusing them to form a permanent bond. Because of its strength, welding is used to construct and repair ships, automobiles, spacecraft, and thousands of other manufactured products, and to join beams when constructing bridges, buildings and other structures. Starting pay for graduates is up to $24 per hour in the East Texas area.
