Apply to Welding Technology

This program has very specific requirements in regards to tools, scheduling, and time commitment. To begin the program, you’ll submit the form below to join a waitlist. After receiving department permission, you’ll be able to register for classes in MyPCC. (However, you can register for Welding 101, Welding 102 or Welding 203 before submitting the form – these three classes are lecture only and registration is first-come, first-served.)

Questions? Attend an information session or talk with a program advisor.

After you apply

Once you submit the form, your name will be added to the waitlist for the location you chose. The instructor for the campus and shift you selected will contact you when a space becomes available. If you are contacted and don’t reply, you will be removed from the list due to an assumed lack of interest. Check your phone you provided on the waitlist and MyPCC email: all communication is done through phone and your PCC email account.
