Welding Technology

A career as a welder can take you where you want to go.

Perry Tech’s one-year Welding Technology program will equip you with the entry-level skills needed to work in this dynamic field. Skilled welders are in demand all over the world. You can put your skills to work in industries ranging from structural iron, manufacturing, fabrication, and equipment repair. With a strong set of welding skills, you can choose your industry and workplace – small town repair shop, big city construction site, or broad range manufacturing operations.
