67 CREDITS

Program Admission Dates: Fall, Spring

Welding Technology certificate students learn welding skills used in construction projects, manufacturing, industrial plants, and in maintenance industries. Using the latest welding processes and techniques, students learn to read blueprints and fabricate products in a variety of shapes and sizes. Students prepare to take the Washington Association of Building Officials (WABO) test.

Welding Technology certificate graduates will:

  • be prepared for a range of entry-level positions as welder apprentices, welders, welder fabricators, welding fitters
  • demonstrate critical thinking, teamwork, communication, intercultural appreciation, and information literacy skills

Lake Washington Institute of Technology does not offer every course each quarter. It is the student’s responsibility to consult the Class Schedule and work out an individual schedule with an advisor. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.

General Education Requirements - 15 Credits


Diversity and Social Justice Requirement


Within the certificate requirements, students must complete a 3-5 credit course that meets the college’s Diversity and Social Justice (DSJ) requirement. DSJ courses are designated in the college schedule and are designed to meet other general education or technical requirements simultaneous to meeting the DSJ requirement (e.g., ENGL& 101D meets both the ENGL& 101 requirement and the DSJ requirement).

Visit the DSJ requirement webpage to view the current list of general education and technical courses that meet the requirement.
