Welding student

Completers of our introductory welding program will be able to go into the welding field as an entry-level welder able to work under the supervision of an experienced welder.

CSM offers three tracks to become a certified welder: Certified Structural Welder, Certified TIG Welder, and Certified MIG Welder. All three tracks require the completion of the following two courses in addition to the remaining training for their chosen track.

To complete the continuing education certificate for Certified Structural Welder, you must also complete:

  • TEC-5820 Intermediate Stick Welding Certified Training
  • TEC-5850 Advanced Shielded Metal Arc Welding

To complete the continuing education certificate for Certified TIG Welder, you must also complete:

  • TEC-5840 Intermediate TIG Welding Certified Training
  • TEC-5870 Advanced Gas Tungsten (TIG) Arc Welding – Pipe

To complete the continuing education certificate for Certified MIG Welder, you must also complete:

  • TEC-5830 Intermediate MIG Welding Certified Training
  • TEC-5860 Advanced Gas Metal (MIG) Arc Welding – Pipe
