Program Information

School:St. Lawrence College
Faculty:Cornwall campus
Degree:Diploma; Co-op; Apprenticeship
Field of Study:Welding Technology/Welder
Description:The program delivers welding technology at the technician level and prepares students for the demands of the welding industry. This market requires graduates with a higher level of theory combined with the practical skills needed to succeed in an industry with an evolving level of complexity.

Graduates of this two-year program are eligible to receive an Ontario College Diploma. Students are registered with the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities as apprentices. They also receive the equivalent of all the in-school training necessary to meet the requirements of the provincially administered welder apprenticeship program. Upon completion of this program and with the additional work experience (on-the-job-training) detailed in the training standards for the welding trade, apprentices are then eligible to challenge the exam for the Certificate of Qualification for the Trade.

Students also have the opportunity to challenge the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) certification in several different welding processes. This allows graduates to provide employers with proof of CWB certification.

This program is funded in part by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
