Description of Welding Courses
Employers desperately need trained welders. That's because they know that their products and structures are only as good as the welds and the welders who produce them — highly skilled men and women with the satisfaction of knowing that their welds literally hold America together. Attending an accredited welding school is an important factor in obtaining these critical skills.
At Triangle Tech, a technical school with six locations throughout Pennsylvania, you can become one of these highly-sought professionals. In our welding courses, you'll learn to weld all types of metals, and you'll learn many modern, sophisticated techniques along with related skills like reading drawings, shop detailing, fitting, and layout.
It's hard work, but when you graduate from Triangle Tech, you'll have your degree*, your welding certifications (AWS and ASME) — and the skills you need to get a great job, just about anywhere you want to go.
Graduates earn an Associate in Specialized Technology Degree* (AST Degree).
