Production Welder

Gas Metal Arc Welding

The mission of the Production Welder certificate program is to prepare students with the knowledge and skills pertaining to gas metal arc welding processes for employment as an entry-level welder.

This certificate program provides minimum coursework and laboratory practice for individuals gaining MIG (GMAW) welding skills required by local employers for entry-level production welding skills. Students focus on the theory and practice associated with production welding in a manufacturing setting.

HVAC/R

Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning

The Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology (HVAC/R) program trains technicians to install, maintain, and repair residential, commercial, and industrial refrigeration and air conditioning systems.

They follow blueprints, design specifications, and manufacturers instructions to install motors, compressors, condensing units, and evaporators, connect equipment to duct work, refrigerant lines and electrical power sources, charge the system with refrigerant, and check for proper operation. Technicians also diagnose problems, test and overhaul compressors, relays, and thermostats, and do required chlorofluor-carbon refrigerants and all the new refrigerants used in air conditioning and refrigeration systems. They use a variety of pipe cutters, benders, acetylene torches, voltmeters, thermometers, pressure gauges, and manometers to check air flow, refrigerant pressure electrical circuits.
