Welder: Entry Level


(H48) Certificate

The SVCC welding program has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the local employers, specifically the manufacturers which make up 30% of the employment in the SVCC college district.

Work and Employment

The entry-level welder can be employed with several different manufacturing companies including, but not limited to, heavy machine manufacturing, garage door makers, steel mill, radiator manufacturing, agricultural manufacturing, and other local companies.

Special Consideration

To obtain employment as an entry level welder, most individuals will be required to possess a high school diploma or GED. A drug test has become customary in most warehousing and distribution companies before hiring.
