Welding

Program Highlights

These introductory courses will give you the basic skills to take on simple welding projects safely. Each faculty member is CWB certified in the process, which they teach. You will learn techniques hands-on in the modern welding lab in the Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre of Fleming's Sutherland Campus. The Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre opened in September 2014. This $36.6 million, 87,000 square foot trades and technology skills training facility is built to LEED environmental and energy efficiency. The labs feature:

  • New advanced process equipment
  • New air filtration system
  • AODA booth - wheelchair accessible
  • Robotic welding cell
  • Plasma arc welder
  • Submerged arc welder
  • Inverter type power supply with pulsing capability for GMAW
  • AC/DC square wave technology GTAW machines

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus store in-person or online: Peterborough Campus Store or Lindsay Campus Store.
