Welding – Foundation

By , May 5, 2014

Welding requires constant physical coordination of arms, hands and eyes, as the student develops manipulative skills through manual training. Related gas welding and arc welding theory, basic metallurgy, basic blue print reading, applied mathematics and principles of safety are covered. Welders use manual or semi-automatic welding, flame-cutting, brazing and soldering equipment to fuse metal.

Effective March 31, 2014, a new Welder Apprenticeship training model will replace the Modular levels Welding C, B and A. The new program will provide a Welder Certificate of Qualification with a Red Seal Endorsement. The information contained in this section reflects the new training model.

If a student is just starting training, or has been unable to secure employment in industry as a Welder, enrolling in a Foundation Trades Training program is a viable option prior to entering into an Apprenticeship. Students in the Welder Foundation program will learn how to work safely and effectively in industry and perform a variety of welding processes and procedures. Individuals completing this program will be better prepared to find an employer sponsor and secure an apprenticeship. Students will write the ITA Welder C Certificate of Qualification exam.

Admission Prerequisites

  • Grade 10 level completion that includes Grade 10 English and Grade 10 Math (Apprenticeship and Workplace), both with 67 per cent (C+) or higher.

Where is the program offered?

Northern Lights College, Dawson Creek (starts September)
