Program Description


CCBC, in partnership with Earlbeck Gases and Technologies, offers a series of welding courses that will take you from beginning skills and techniques in Fundamentals of Welding through additional courses that cover intermediate and advanced Shielded Metal Arc, Gas Metal Arc and Gas Tungsten Arc welding processes. If you have basic welding experience, you can take intermediate and/or advanced classes. Classes are held at Earlbeck, which is fully equipped to offer hands-on training and instruction.

Program Outcomes


Successful Completion:

CCBC Credential:

Students will have access to a Continuing Education academic record (transcript). Students will receive a Continuing Education Workforce Training Certificate for each class.

External Credential:

Earlbeck Gases and Technologies completion certificates are given for each class, as well as an AWS qualification certificate upon successful completion of all intermediate level classes. An American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) qualification certificate is awarded upon successful completion of the full training.

Certifying Organization: American Welding Society (AWS)
