Welding Technician

weldingThe RevUp welding program teaches the theory and operation of welding and thermal cutting processes for Montana welding jobs. RevUp’s welding programs train students in state-of-the-art facilities. There are two levels of training. Local manufacturers helped design the training based on the skills they need in their businesses. RevUp’s welding students can also earn credentials from the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) during their program. These credits fit with the American Welding Society (AWS) SENSE standards and guidelines.

In Tier 1: Students learn the basics of several welding and cutting processes while meeting safety requirements. Students practice shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW) and flux cored arc welding (FCAW). Students will also learn to read welding blueprints and weld symbols. At the end of Tier 1, students earn a Certificate of Technical Skills degree, if they do not continue into higher levels of training. Most Tier 1 students can earn an NCCER Welding Level 1 credential during the program.

In Tier 2 students become proficient in SMAW, FCAW and GMAW welding processes and learn to produce welds in all positions that meet industry standards. Students can also learn more advanced arc welding processes, including gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW). Most Tier 2 students earn NCCER Welding Level 2 credentials during the program. Students completing both Tier 1 and Tier 2 will earn a Certificate of Applied Science degree.
