Welding

From basic torch-cutting to more advanced arc and TIG welding techniques, the Welding program offers a variety of courses designed to help you start or continue a career in welding. Closely adhering to the quality standards set by the National Center for Construction Education Research.  The ACC Welding Program teaches students the safe and effective use of tools as well as the skills needed to obtain employment.

Welding courses combine classroom studies with extensive hands-on training in the welding lab at the ACC Main Campus in Alvin. Each student is furnished with a workstation and materials to maximize learning and small classes with a maximum students to instructor ratio of Sixteen to one also ensure the best possible learning environment for welding students.

Historically, the demand for skilled welders has always been high and all indications show that career opportunities are steadily increasing. In the past, Alvin Community College welding graduates have found jobs in a number of industries including petrochemical refineries, construction companies, fabrication shops and ship yards. The shortage of skilled welders has created a demand so great that entry-level positions now command excellent salaries and benefits.

Requirements:

  • Must be 18 years of age
  • Must have Social Security number
  • Must be in good physical health
