LOCATION: Patterson Site

Welding is the technology of using various methods to join, cut, scrape, or finish metal by applying intense heat and/or pressure to melt the edges of metal so they fuse permanently.

The Welding Program at Trenholm State Community College is designed to give technical knowledge and experience in six different welding and cutting processes. The student will attain hands-on experience in pipe welding, brazing, manual and machine cutting, blueprint reading, and welding processes used by industry in the fabrication of steel components. Through practical application, a student is taken through a series of welds and processes, using different joints and weld structures duplicated as closely as possible to an actual on-the-job situation.


The Mission of the welding program at Trenholm State is to prepare individuals to enter and progress in a career as a welder in manufacturing, construction or maintenance. This program is based on curriculum approved by the Program Advisory Committee and meets national industry skills standards. The Program Advisory Committee meets twice per year to review curriculum.
