Ivy Tech – Welding

Department Chair: Molly Joseph        Email: mjoseph22@ivytech.edu          Office Phone: 812-298-2335

Program Description: The Structural Welding Certificate (CT) will prepare students to become American Welding Society (AWS) qualified and earn an OSHA 10-Hour certification, to give them the skills needed to become a Production Welder. During this program, students will investigate various Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding, (GTAW) & Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) processes including: short circuit transfer, spray transfer, metal-core and flux-core (FCAW) welding. Welding techniques in all positions on various thicknesses of metal.

Our Graduates: Once you are finished, you will have earned 3 AWS qualifications and an OSHA-10 certification. You will have the option of entering the workforce or completing the Technical Certificate (TC) in Welding Technology and the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree, with only a few more credit hours to complete
