Take your passion for developing a plan, solving problems and working with your hands into a career in metal fabrication with a one-year technical diploma from Moraine Park Technical College.
Moraine Park’s two-semester metal fabrication technical diploma gives students hands-on experience in fabricating metal products from start to finish. Students work on individual and team projects, as well as service-learning projects for the community.
In Moraine Park’s hands-on metal fabrication courses, students learn how to build metal products from start to finish, read prints and use lean practices in automated cutting, forming and welding. Students also learn gas metal arc welding (GMAW); gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW); and laser, plasma and oxy-fuel cutting.
Upon completion, students are prepared to take the FMA Fundamentals of Metal Fabrication Certificate exam.
We want our students to succeed in the classroom and beyond, which is why we have worked with leaders in business and industry to develop Critical Core Manufacturing Skills (CCMS). The metal fabrication training program at MPTC is designed to help students work cooperatively, work productively, listen effectively, demonstrate a positive attitude, maintain a safe work environment, demonstrate integrity, communicate clearly, follow directions, apply problem solving strategies, apply mathematical reasoning, think critically and adapt to change.
