As a welder, you’ll be trained to work in a variety of environments, including indoors, outdoors, in a workshop or factory, on the road, on a pipeline, up high on scaffolding or a stadium, in the ocean, or even on a race car team or cruise ship.
IMBC’s program can help welders at all skill levels succeed; from those just entering the field to seasoned veterans. Located at our Erie campus with 32 large welding bays stocked with a full suite of welding tools, you’ll be given hands-on instruction. Students will start with basic welding applications and then proceed to more advanced welding techniques, including mig, tig, pipe, and structural metal welding. Courses also include destructive and non-destructive testing and quality control to ensure that students have a thorough understanding of welding and its applications across a variety of settings. Our welding program includes safety training so that students become familiar with the safety procedures and regulations governing welding and welding environments.
The welding technology program does not require an internship. However, IMBC partners with global organizations, such as the American Welding Society and Lincoln Electric to bring a high-quality welding experience to each student.
