Welders are in demand in countless industries. Decades of few new workers entering the trades have left vocations like welding with an aging workforce and shortage of qualified people. Mahany Welding Supply and Rochester Arc and Flame have partnered with Monroe Community College to offer a Certificate program to help Rochester area workers get the relevant training they need to get jobs in the exciting and rewarding field of welding.
The RocAFC Career Welding & Fabrication Program is a 20-week job readiness course that runs weekly for 360 course hours and features training for MIG, TIG, Flux Core and Stick welding processes. Course curriculum combines a rigorous amount of hands-on learning, academic lectures, written assignments, quizzes and tests, collaborative group projects and print reading. Students also take a 10-hour OSHA training session and classes in resume writing, interviewing and mathematics.
On-site AWS Qualification training and testing is conducted to give students the ability to specialize in areas that will help them obtain their desired career. On average, most students graduate with two-dozen or more qualifications. AWS Qualification testing is included in the course price. Tuition also includes professional welding gear valued at over $700 for each student to use during the program and on the job.
We also work with companies looking to hire skilled fabricators or need to train current employees for specific qualifications. RocAFC Welding & Fabrication Certificate Program’s students become excellent assets to employers specifically in the greater Rochester area. To date, our graduates have been hired by over 40 different Rochester area employers.
"From the first day on the job, I felt I was more than prepared to handle the tasks at hand." Quote from Greg Lalley, Certificate Program Graduate and Professional Pipefitter/Welder.
