Welding/Fabrication Certifications

The Boot Camps teach to the American Welding Society (AWS) - Welding students that successfully complete a practical test of their skills in performing a sound weld receive AWS certification for Gas Metal Arc Welding- GTAW- for vertical and horizontal positions in accordance with the American Welding Society standard test on 1 inch plate A36 structural steel.

Students have the opportunity to obtain certification in Critical Core Manufacturing Skills (CCMS) to measure skills in productivity, problem solving, teamwork and adaptability through the Wisconsin Technical College System.

Students can obtain Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) Credentialing in Safety. MSSC offers comprehensive training to build the core knowledge and skills needed in advanced manufacturing.  The MSSC Safety module is focused on maintaining a safe and productive work environment, ensuring the safe use of equipment in the workplace, and communicating safety-related needs. A combination of blended learning allows participants to develop high performance manufacturing skills through lectures, self-paced studies, computer-based simulation labs, presentations, and individual/group activities.  A certificate is awarded for successful completion of coursework and online assessment for each module.  The boot camp integrates the MSSC safety module into the program through a Machine Shop Safety course.  MSSC Key Activities Covered:

  • Fulfilling safety and health requirements for maintenance, installation and repair
  • Identifying unsafe conditions and taking corrective action
  • Performing environmental and safety inspections
  • Monitoring equipment and operator performance
  • Performing emergency drills and participating in emergency response teams
  • Providing safety orientation for other employees
  • Suggesting process and procedures that support safety and effectiveness of the work environment
  • Communicating safety, training, and job-specific needs
  • Training others to use equipment safely
