30-442-1 Technical Diploma (TD) Part Time and Full Time 13 Credits Not Financial Aid Eligible Time of Day: Day and Evening Locations*: Appleton, Oshkosh

*If general education courses are required, they may be available at multiple locations.

Production welders are in high demand. You’ll find employment opportunities in ironwork, construction and manufacturing, and could find yourself working on large amphibious vehicles and fire trucks, or small metal products like lawnmowers and snow throwers. Your training will cover welding various metals and will give you plenty of time to practice your skills. You'll learn to read sketches, blueprints, job shop orders, bills for materials and welding symbols.
