SLCC offers short-term courses for anyone interested in learning to weld or advance their welding skills. After completing our short-term course, you will have the skills to start your career as a structural welder or advance your current skills to work on pipelines.
Our short-term programs will train you in the welding processes you’ll need to know as a professional welder:
- SMAW (Shielded Metal Arc Welding)
- FCAW (Flux-Cored Arc Welding)
- GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding) (MIG)
- GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) (TIG)
- Advanced Welding: Alloys/Aluminum and Pipe
Welding is used in many industries, including automotive, shipbuilding, aerospace, general manufacturing, pipelines, power plants, refineries, general construction, and more! Wherever metal needs adhering, a welder is needed. The most common entry-level employment opportunities are Structural Welder, Welder Helper, Tacker, and Cutters.
SLCC offers a 24-week Combination Welding Course to get you ready for a new career. If you are interested in welding as a hobby or would like to enhance your current skills, we also offer courses for you to learn basic, intermediate, and advanced welding techniques. Short-term Welding courses are offered in the evenings at our Lafayette, Morgan City, and St. Martinville campuses.
