Welding Technology

Gain a skill that has a place in almost all construction and industry settings.


Do you like to make things with your hands? Do you crave the satisfaction that comes from creating sound structures? Can you see yourself working on a team to build pipelines, refineries, skyscrapers, and bridges? Welders create foundations that make up the infrastructure of all things steel, aluminum, and pipe-based.

The one-year certificate in welding technology provides a student with specific training for structural and pipe welding and aluminum welding certification. Students gain comprehensive training in the latest welding technology, blueprint reading, layout, and fabrication.

The one-year welding certificate can be earned at the Kenai River Campus (Soldotna) but general classes that are required for this program can be taken through any of KPC's campuses or online.
