Welding and Equipment Repair

OCAS Program Code K101 - Two Semesters (30 wks., begins in September)

Students will have the opportunity to develop welding, fabrication and repair skills required for employment in a variety of repair and welding occupations. Employers need welders today with the ability to perform a wide variety of tasks in the fabrication, repair and maintenance fields. In addition to a sound knowledge of the safe and efficient use of welding equipment, students will gain an understanding of the operation and repair of equipment found in Ontario. The program places a heavy emphasis (70% of training hours) on the hands-on mode of training. You learn to weld by welding.
