Welding and metal fabrication are stock tools of many trades. In the US, the demand for trained weld fabricators continues to rise in the small shop setting. The range of job opportunities and skill needs is diverse; including blueprint reading, layout, cutting and fitting parts, tack and production welding, finishing and material handling.

Training includes all facets of welding and fabrication operations including planning operation sequences, applying knowledge of geometry, heat effects and metal properties, positioning, fitting, welding and material handling. Computer training is included so that WFT graduates can program and operate state-of-the-art computer-controlled machinery. Special projects are also offered for the journey-level weld fabricator desiring to update skills and certification.

Graduates are prepared for positions such as weld fabricators, shop supervisors, estimators and shop owners in boatbuilding, automotive, machine fabrication, commercial fishing gear, piping systems, and building construction and maintenance.

We are a WABO accredited testing facility and offer WABO welder certification testing and test preparation to the public.
