The Welding Technology Program prepares students for work in the field Welding Technology. In addition to gaining an overall understanding of welding machines, weld processes, and hands-on welding proficiency, students develop skills in the areas of blueprint reading, welding symbols, weld inspection, destructive and non-destructive testing, metallurgy, computer-aided drafting along with precisions machine tool operations. Students gain knowledge and skills necessary to prepare them for weld qualification to code specifications.

The Certificate in Welding Technology stresses the practical applications of welding on plate pipe in all positions and the necessary theory to support those skill levels. Welding skills are developed with supported courses. A student must earn a grade of C or higher in all courses required for the program in order to receive a certificate.

 

Note: Navajo Technical University’s Welding curriculum meets the American Welding Society certification (AWS). A graduate from the program is eligible for certification in any state. For further information, students will need to contact the instructor for exam schedule or the organization at: https://www.aws.org/certification/professionalcertifications.

Professional Licensure Disclosure: While NTU is making the determinations for each program listed above, we are still working on determination for each particular state(s) that are being researched. Once the information is added, the date and specific information will be verified to ensure good practice in case requirements change. In addition, under 34 CFR §668.43 require that institutions provide a direct disclosure to enrolled and prospective students in writing if the program potentially leading to professional licensure either:

  • Has determined that its curriculum meets the state educational requirements for licensure or certification;
  • Has determined that its curriculum does not meet the state educational requirements for licensure or certification; and
  • Has not made a determination that its curriculum meets the state educational requirements for licensure or certification.
