Is Welding & Fitting for you?

Program Description

All classes are taught in WQCC’s state of the art facility, where you have the opportunity to use up to date equipment and learn about advanced technology in the welding and fabrication field. Over the course of the 1800 hour program students will complete 29 different modules encompassing all aspects of the welding and fitting trade.

Time Commitment

This is a 60 week course with start dates in January and September every year. The program consists of in class or shop learning from 8:30 to 3:20 Monday to Friday. The day is broken into 2 blocks of 3 hour with 50 minutes for lunch.

Delivery Method

All modules are divided into 2 categories, either theory or practical. Theory modules take place in the classroom as a group using books, handouts, and our online resources. The practical learning takes place in our state of the art shop where students work alone or as part of a group to complete assignments.

OR;

  • Persons who are at least 18 years of age upon entry into the program and have the following functional prerequisites: the successful completion of the General Development Test (see the following table), or recognition of equivalent learning. OR;

  • Persons who have obtained Secondary III credits in language of instruction, second language and mathematics in programs established by the Minister are required to pursue general education courses, concurrently with their vocational training, in order to obtain the Secondary IV credits they lack in language of instruction, second language and mathematics in programs established by the Minister.
     

Functional prerequisites

  • This section identifies the modules or course codes for the actual programs of study in adult general education that are specific prerequisites in language of instruction and mathematics. Functional prerequisites includes the successful completion of specific prerequisites as well as the general development test (GDT). When a DVS doesn't require specific prerequisites in language of instruction or in mathematics, a dash ( - ) is displayed in the appropriate cell. For programs that lead to an AVS, specific prerequisites and the GDT do not apply (N/A).
