Welding Technology

CCC offers a variety of welding workshops, ranging from very basic to advanced skill levels. Workshops include lecture and hands-on lab training under the close supervision of a qualified trainer. We can customize our training programs to meet your organization’s unique needs and culture. 

Welding training is offered on campus, or we can bring the training to your organization with our mobile welding lab.
