TIG Welder

Training Certificate

Overview

This program focuses on the Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) process. In two, 8-week courses you will learn how to fillet and groove weld flat plate in all positions as well as pipe weld in the 6G position. The TIG Welder Certificate is a stand-alone certificate, but should be taken after the Stick or MIG/Flux Cored certificates.

To ensure the best training outcomes, experienced welders seeking to upskill with TIG training alone should meet with a welding instructor prior to enrolling in the program to determine skill level.

  • 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.
