Welding Showcase Returns to Fleming College


Peterborough, ON (April 15, 2024) – The hard work and dedication of Fleming College’s skilled trades students will be on display during the annual Welding Showcase on April 16.

This event celebrates Fleming’s renown welding programs-Welding Techniques and Welding and Fabrication Technician. Each year, almost 100 students graduate from these two programs ready to work and pursue a lucrative career in welding.

The Showcase features their capstone projects and demonstrates the skills and techniques students have learned during their time at Fleming.

Welding Techniques is an entry level welder program which runs for two semesters. The Welding and Fabrication Technician program offers extra training in a wide range of related subjects, including math, layout and fitting stainless and aluminum welding and metallurgy.

Throughout the day welding industry experts, business owners, union representatives and sales and safety representatives will be visiting students, checking out their projects, and talking to them about their career aspirations. This is also an opportunity for students to get some guidance on future job prospects. Local high school students are also invited to attend, to see what Fleming’s program has to offer and learn more about the welding trade.

The Showcase begins at 1 p.m. in the Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre at Fleming’s Sutherland Campus.
