Welding Program

RCTC’s Welding Technology program is designed to prepare students for careers in metal joining. The program provides an overview of the basic principles and practical application of the most commonly utilized welding processes including welding terminology, weld design, blueprint reading, safety, electrical theory, the weldability of metals, and quality control.

Employer Testimonial:

“We have experienced significant needs for qualified trades persons over the last two years. We have hired from a couple of sources. The employees we have obtained via the RCTC welding program are much more prepared for our type of work and know this is an interest of theirs. This saves us training time and lessens recruitment needs.”
