What You’ll Learn

Skills pay the bills, or so the popular adage goes. Welding, in one form or another, has been an integral part of the global workforce for more than 2,000 years. While the technology of welding has evolved dramatically since the Iron Age, the need for skilled welders is greater than ever and guess what – it pays well too!

BTC’s program offers a number of flexible formats and schedules through individual courses, specialty certificates and or a comprehensive technical diploma. In fact, students can start the program at almost any time during the fall or spring semesters.

During this program, you have the opportunity to gain experience welding structural steel, aluminum, stainless steel along with other metals – all within a new advanced manufacturing training facility that is the envy of every college in Wisconsin.

Major job skills learned through this program include Oxygen-Fuel Cutting (OFC), Plasma Arc Cutting (PAC), Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW), Metal Core Arc Welding (MCAW) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding.
