Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide unsurpassed technical training and industry relevance toward a career for the student aspiring to become a certified welder, welding inspector, or respected metal artist.

Many people are unaware of the tremendous scope and potential offered by welding technology. It is such a diverse field that there is an application for virtually every personality type. It is no exaggeration to say that our students are learning to manufacture everything from drawer pulls to skyscrapers. To meet the needs of these ever-expanding disciplines, we offer a number of flexible formats offered through individual courses, specialty certificates, and even comprehensive college degrees.

The ACC Welding Technology Department endeavors to maintain excellence throughout the many facets of Welding Technology. The unique offerings of this department include Technical Welding, Welding Inspection, Metalsmithing, and Metal Sculpture. These programs are recognized in quality and relevance, and are one of a kind nationally in such diverse offerings. Our graduates will possess the skills and knowledge to thrive in any local, regional, national, or even global economy as Welding Technologists.
