Manufacturing Technology: Welding II, Advanced Certificate

MAFT.CRT.V63

Program Overview

The Manufacturing Technology: Welding II Advanced Certificate is designed to develop within the student practical skills in drafting, tungsten inert gas welding, metal inert gas welding, stick electrode welding, oxyacetylene welding, oxyacetylene cutting and oxyacetylene brazing. Such entry-level manufacturing welding positions include, but are not limited to: manufacturing welder technician, production welder/fitter and fabricator. The core competencies of manufacturing production taught in this program are based on Manufacturing Skill Standards Council criteria. The MSSC is an industry-led, training, assessment and certification system focused on the core skills and knowledge needed by the nation’s front-line production and material handling workers.

Additional Program Information

Students who successfully pass all four assessments (MAFT 1112, MAFT 1222, MAFT 1232 and MAFT 1312) will be recognized as a Certified Production Technician (CPT) by the MSSC.
