Stand out from the rest with our eight-month welding training - 2021/2022

The welder is respected on any jobsite or shop floor as a person who works with their hands and understands the theory needed to get the project finished. If you want to be ready to write your welding ticket test in only eight months, Fanshawe’s Welding Techniques program will get you there. You’ll spend two semesters learning a wide range of skills that are needed in today’s fast-paced workplaces, including health and safety, blueprint readings and sketching, applied math, communication, shielded metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, introduction to computers and all-position pipe welding. 

What you learn in our welding courses

Learning welding theory is vital, but so is the practical training needed to perform the most basic welding techniques before applying your skills in the workforce. With Fanshawe's welding certification program, you'll:

  • complete a 120-hour unpaid work placement that will help you make connections in the field and earn experience to stand out from the rest;
  • develop hands-on skills and confidence using real-world industry equipment;
  • be qualified to work as a welder, welder fitter trainee or as an apprentice in a wide range of trades including boilermaker, construction millwright, industrial mechanic/millwright, ironworker or pipefitter.

The convenience of multiple campus locations

Fanshawe's Welding Techniques program is offered at a multiple campus locations for your convenience. Book a regional campus tour to meet staff, tour state-of-the-art facilities and learn more about the high demand for welders in our communities.
