Welding & Fabrication

Instructor: Tedd Moody

This course is designed for students who are ready to challenge themselves and become the welders and metal fabricators of tomorrow. Various welding and cutting processes are taught throughout the year and students will demonstrate these skills through hands-on activities in the shop. Production strategies and lean manufacturing skills are demonstrated, giving the students a taste of the real-world and what makes a successful business. First year students are challenged in flat and horizontal welding positions while second year students learn how to weld in the vertical and overhead positions. Employability, which emphasizes their professional conduct, is a significant portion of the student’s grade. Students enrolled in this program will be expected to participate in routine physical activities on a daily basis that will foster the development of movement skills and enhance health-related fitness. (13207A001 & 002)
