Certificate in Welding Technology Courses

From local repair shops to large industrial factories, welders put creative thinking to the test and rely on a set of specialized skills to create some of today’s most advanced machinery.

Goodwin University’s certificate in Welding Technology provides the technical training and hands-on experience that today’s employers are looking for. Take welding school classes full time and complete your certificate in as few as 8 months!

Our 24-credit program covers everything from welding safety and fabrication to common welding methods including shielded metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, flux core arc welding, and thermal cutting. Your welding school coursework will teach you how to navigate a welding worksite safely and includes projects that mirror the type of work you will be doing in the field.

At Goodwin, you will use state-of-the-art machinery to create and weld complex parts using our CNC plasma table; put your skills to the test using our virtual reality welding machine; and have the opportunity to learn precise pipe alignment with our innovative Bluco table.
