Welcome to the San Jacinto Welding Class Homepage
Welding teaches students various welding processes, correct welding procedures, and practical metal fabrication skills through classroom and hands-on lab experiences. Some of the techniques students learn are Gas Metal Arc Welding, Arc Welding, Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Gas Tungsten Arc Welding, Oxy-Fuel Welding, Oxy-Acetylene Cutting, Plasma Arc Cutting, and Computer Automated Plasma Cutting. Welding is associated with the ABC apprenticeship program and the American Welding Society.


This course is designed to provide students with entry-level skills required in the various metalworking occupations. Completion of Welding I and Welding II qualifies students to earn college credit as well as the opportunity to be certified in a variety of AWS certifications. Areas to be covered include oxygen-acetylene gas welding, gas tungsten arc welding, metallic inert gas, stick electrode arc welding processes, spot welding, drafting and blueprint reading, sheet metal forming processes, metalworking power tools, and hot and cold metal fabrication.
