Technical Certificate in Welding Technology
The Welding Technology Certificate Program allows students to develop skills to meet certain certification test standards for both structural and high pressure vessel welding. Students will also be prepared to assume positions that require an understanding of fabrication and layout.
Possible Required Courses
Based upon placement testing results, some students will be required to successfully complete ENGL 0083 Occupational Communications and/or MATH 0033 Math for Trades in order to develop college level reading, writing, and math skills. These courses do not fulfill degree requirements and they will not transfer to any 4-year institution.

*ARKANSAS COURSE TRANSFER SYSTEM (ACTS)
The Arkansas Course Transfer System (ACTS) contains information about the transferability of courses within Arkansas public colleges and universities. Students are guaranteed the transfer of applicable credits and the equitable treatment in the application of credits for the admissions and degree requirements. Course transferability is not guaranteed for courses listed in ACTS as “No Comparable Course.” Additionally, courses with a “D” frequently do not transfer and institutional policies may vary. ACTS may be accessed on the Internet by going to the ADHE website and selecting Course Transfer (http://adhe.edu). Courses not having an ACTS number may also transfer. Please consult the receiving institution for complete transfer information.
