Meld passion and learning by joining the OTC Welding Technology Program. The program’s mission is to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to obtain employment as an entry-level welder/fabricator in a manufacturing, structural or architectural environment. The program uses the American Welding Society and the aid of a technical advisory committee to develop course content and competencies that provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in the welding and fabrication industry.

Our practical coursework provides skills-based instruction in state-of-the-art laboratories, so you will learn by doing. Courses include Welding Safety, Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Welding Inspection Technology and more. We offer an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) in Welding Technology degree in both stainless and structural welding. We also offer a Certificate of Achievement in Welding Technology in both specializations for those seeking a faster path to graduation.

The lab facility at the Springfield campus is certified by the American Welding Society (AWS).
