1. Students will be able to perform oxy-fuel cutting techniques. 2. Students will be able to perform carbon arc cutting (CAC) and plasma arc cutting (PAC) processes. 3. Students will be able to set up shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) equipment and perform welds using specified electrodes.

Typical Student Load and Courses by Semester

Note: This is a sample course sequence. Courses scheduled each semester may vary according to student progress and the need for developmental classes.

* Important Note for students and advisors: High school graduates (including students with a GED) may substitute ORI 101 Orientation for ORT 111 Orientation and SPH 106 Fundamentals of Oral Communication for SPC 103 Oral Communication Skills. High school graduates in certificate programs may wish to pursue an associate degree or higher at a later time and should note that ORI 101 and SPH 106 are associate degree eligible transfer courses while ORT 111 and SPC 103 are not. High school graduates scoring into higher level mathematics or English classes on the placement assessment may substitute the higher level classes for MAH 101 Introductory Mathematics I and COM 100 Introductory Technical English I which are not transferrable courses.
