Your future looks bright with a challenging, hands-on welding career that can take you almost anywhere!
Cooking utensils, construction materials, underwater cable lines, solar panels, airplanes, cars and the roads they travel on all rely on welding. Welding is linked to our economic stability, because without welded materials, we can’t sustain and grow as a society. This makes welders essential to our daily life. Yet, fewer people are learning the trade today creating a high demand for qualified welders. It’s never been a better time to begin your journey in this important industry.
WNCC is an American Welding Society (AWS) Accredited test facility, and also has on-site mobile welding training and testing.
WNCC’s welding program is located at our Scottsbluff Campus in the following welding processes:
- Shielded Metal Arc Welding: Provides training in all positions on mild steel with single and multi-pass welds. WNCC has classes in structural steel and pipe welding meeting code standards for AWS (structural), ASME (pressure piping), and API (cross country piping).
- Gas Metal Arc Welding: Provides training in all positions on mild steel, with single and multi-pass welds using short circuit transfer and spray transfer modes.
- Flux Cored Arc Welding: Provides training in all positions on mild steel, with and without shielding gas, using small diameter dual shield electrodes.
- Gas Tungsten Arc Welding: Training is provided on mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum plate, and carbon steel pipe and tubing in all positions.
- Oxyacetylene Welding, Cutting, and Brazing: The oxyacetylene welding curriculum teaches how to flame cut plate, weld, and braze weld mild steel in the flat and horizontal positions.
