Program Description

If you’re looking for a job that pays well and will always be challenging, welding offers a wide variety of choices. If you’d like even more responsibility someday, there’s plenty of room for growth. Welding Technology, for example, touches on every profession and industry that uses metal.

Welding instructors at Riverside Community College have all had extensive experience with welding and have earned B.A. and M.A. degrees. Their teaching skills, equipment and curriculum have been reviewed by an advisory committee made up of industrial leaders in the region who employ welders and craftsmen engaged in welding and fabrication.
