Part-time Welding courses are designed to either facilitate career exploration or to enhance skills and knowledge of individuals already in the trade. Beginner introductory courses provide the opportunity to practice cutting and welding, while advanced courses permit students to prepare for B Pressure or Visual Welding exams.
All students enrolled in Continuing Education classes in the Welding program are required to provide their own protective clothing, welding gloves, and cutting and welding goggles which must fit over their own safety glasses. These requirements are in accordance with regulations under Alberta’s Occupational Health & Safety Act.
Students MUST abide by all safety rules and regulations while working in the welding shops. Running shoes are not acceptable footwear in the welding shops. If students prefer their own helmets, they must be the “flip-front” or photoelectric type.
Students will require these articles for their first class: one pair leather gauntlet welding gloves, one pair safety glasses that fit under welding goggles, one pair welding goggles, one pair safety-toed boots, one shop coat or smock (100% cotton), one beanie or welder's hat.
