MIG and Flux Cored Welder

Training Certificate

Overview

This program focuses on the Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) and Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)  processes. In two, 8-week classes you will learn how to use both processes to weld in all positions.  You will also learn how to properly set up and use an Oxy-Fuel Torch.  The MIG and Flux Cored Welder Certificate is a stand-alone certificate, but can be combined with the Stick and TIG certificates to earn the Comprehensive Welder Certificate.

  • Students are required to purchase approximately $400-500 worth of welding gear and small hand tools.
  • Courses taken in this program may be applied toward academic program courses. This will be done on a case-by-case basis.

Careers

Welder

MIG and Flux-Cored welders can find work with a variety of industrial, construction, and manufacturing companies. MIG welders often work in fabrication where the weld is visible and a high-quality weld is needed. Flux Cored welders often work with thicker metal in the manufacturing and construction fields. Flux Cored welding is also used in repair welding applications on heavy vehicles and equipment.
