The Welding programs prepare students for employment in the welding industry. Two tracks are offered: a general welding focus and a maritime welding focus. Graduates are provided education and training for environments such as shipyards, utilities, manufacturing, marine, and oil refineries.
A moderate level of manual dexterity and an average mechanical aptitude are helpful. Prospective welding students should contact the Welding Department at (757) 822-2300 for prior approval before enrolling.
The Career Studies Certificate in Maritime Welding prepares students for entry-level positions as maritime welders. While some welding skills are universal, this program will focus specifically on developing the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to obtain employment as a maritime welder.
