The Amarillo College Welding program is recognized through the American Welding Society (A.W.S.) as a SENSE Training Organization. SENSE stands for Schools Excelling through National Skills Standards Education. The program offers one Certificate consisting of beginning and advanced classes. Students learn through guidelines and practice to pass AWS skills qualifications as they advance through the program. When students have successfully completed the program, they are registered with AWS as a Level I - Entry Welder and put into the AWS database. Students finish knowing they are ready to go out into the work world with the confidence and knowledge that they can weld to American Welding Society qualifications.
All classes are offered for Academic credit or Adult Continuing Education. Students can attend morning or evening classes.

The Welding Technology program strives to offer quality, hands-on education that will lead to the success of every student that passes our doors. From the backyard hobbyists to the entry-level welder who is ready for A.W.S. qualifications, we seek to teach to the highest standards possible.
