Welding has become very complex and very technical. The welding program at COSSA will provide you with the information and training to step directly into employment.

In almost everyone's lifetime we are faced with situations where the knowledge of joining metals is necessary. This program will prepare you for the most basic welding processes to join such metals as carbon steel, aluminum, and stainless steel.

Welding is a three year program that will prepare you for many types of employment related to welding, engineering, quality control, manufacturing technician and many other industries.

Welding internships are available.

Upon completion of Level III and passing the American Welding Society certification exam, students may earn their AWS certification.
