Training: Welding (NAMC)


Free Training Opportunity: Welding

NAMC’s welding training programs, averaging 300 hours in length, prioritize comprehensive instruction in Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), commonly known as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding and Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) or (MIG) welding alongside Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW). The heightened demand for individuals skilled in (TIG) and (MIG) welding, as underscored by Massachusetts employers and industry partners in the manufacturing sector, is the driving force behind these programs. In response to this demand, graduates of NAMC’s welding programs are well-prepared for entry-level welding positions spanning across various disciplines. Students completing these programs develop proficiency in welding standards set by the American Welding Society (AWS).
This comprehensive preparation instills graduates with the confidence to successfully obtain the AWS industry-recognized certification upon employment,
thereby bolstering their professional credentials within the welding industry and ensuring their readiness for the workforce.
