Our Welding Fundamentals Program is based on the CWB Group's CWBi Acorn national welding program and helps you get the fundamental skills, shop practices and knowledge you need to be able to weld safely and effectively. Learn basic shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW) and oxy-fuel welding.
Program Delivery Method:
This welding program is delivered in a blended format that combines classroom, online and shop environments.
Career options typically include working with SMAW, GMAW and oxy-fuel welding on carbon steel in entry-level structural welder positions.
Once you have completed all the requirements of this program, you can request to receive a certificate of completion. Program graduates can register for flat, horizontal, vertical and/or overhead position welding testing held on-site at George Brown College's CWB accredited test centre. Exams are overseen by the CWB Group, and the CWB Group will issue the appropriate welding ticket/licence if an exam is passed.
