“It’s a great time to be a welder. Thanks to a global boom in industrial manufacturing, skilled welders are in greater demand than ever. Companies can’t find enough of them.” Wall Street Journal

From the bottom of the ocean to outer space, welders are in high-demand in both South Dakota and across the nation for their skill and expertise in many industries. To meet this critical demand, Southeast Tech is offering four Welding Technology Certificates that can be completed in as little as 8-weeks including:

  • Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW)
  • Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW)
  • Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW)
  • Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW)

Students can choose from an 8-week daytime program or 16-week evening program to fit their lifestyle. Courses are taught with intensive hands-on instruction and will have the opportunity to test for American Welding Society (AWS) certification prior to the end of the program.
