Certified Welders are in demand in many industries, including manufacturing, aerospace engineering, the automobile industry, HVAC/Plumbing, and so much more. Become a certified welder through a new program at County College of Morris! Learn in our new state-of-the-art Advanced Manufacturing Center and earn your certified welders license.

Learn the basics of welding in CCM’s all new welding lab in the Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Center. Welding, an essential skill used in manufacturing and technology, is continually seeking skilled welders for their workforce.  Add in preparation for American Welding Society (AWS) certification and be prepared to standout in the job market!

In this 200-hour program, you will learn the differences and applications of the four main welding processes:  Flux (FCAW or Flux Cored Arc Welding), Stick (SMAW or Shielded Metal Arc Welding), MIG (Metal, Inert Gas) and TIG (Tungsten, Inert Gas) welding.  You will prepare to successfully pass the AWS Level 1 Entry-Welder certification exam.

All students will begin with prerequisite courses that include occupational orientation, basic health and safety of welders and drawing and welding symbol interpretation.  Students will be able to rotate into process specific instructional modules upon completion of the prerequisite courses.  In addition to the four welding processes, students will also learn thermal cutting and the foundation of welding inspection and testing.

Instructor Joseph Eannetta, a subject-matter expert, holds multiple certifications including TIG, MIG, Stick, FCAW; D1.1 structural steel certification in SMAW and FCAW-G; ASTM A672/A672M-19 pipe welding certification in SMAW / FCAW-G; OSHA 10,OSHA 30 and OSHA Hazwoper.
