About the Program

The Welder’s Helper Career Pathways two-term certificate program is designed to recognize students’ accomplishments in welding and prepare them for entry-level work experiences in the welding industry. Students will be prepared with mathematics skills and the understanding of skills necessary to be valuable employees in the industrial welding trades. Credit from this certificate will transfer to the one-year Certificate of Completion and/or the Associate of Applied Science degree in Industrial Welding Technology.

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. For a list of learning outcomes for this discipline or program, see www.roguecc.edu/Programs/LearningOutcomes.


Entry Requirements

Students are required to take a placement test to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill levels as determined by placement test scores. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.


Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over seven years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements. High school College Now credit will be accepted in accordance with current agreement. Verified industry experience may be substituted for some coursework in accordance with college policy and the department chair’s approval.
