About the Program

Want to become a welder? Get the training you need to gain entry-level employment (in less than a year!) in Moraine Park’s Welding technical diploma program.

Moraine Park’s Welding technical diploma program teaches individuals the welding and fabrication skills needed in today’s industries. Through hands-on experience in a welding laboratory, students gain skills in all welding positions.

What You'll Learn

Upon completion, students will know how to interpret welding drawings, operate metal fabricating equipment, perform thermal cutting, produce gas metal arc welds (GMAW), produce gas tungsten arc welds (GTAW), produce shielded metal arc welds (SMAW), produce flux cored arc welds (FCAW) and demonstrate safety practices.

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 welding diploma 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.
