Learn fundamental welding techniques and current theories in one year.

Program Overview

Develop fundamental skills in the high-demand welding trade

Canada has a growing demand for skilled welders, and Sheridan offers some of the top training in the GTA. You'll get in-depth hands-on education in current welding techniques — working with the most current technology — and study the theory at the same time. Learn shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) and flux-cored arc welding (FCAW).

Earn up to three Canadian Welding Bureau licences

Our one-year program gives you the chance to earn certifications with the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB). You may test in three welding processes in the flat position to obtain up to three licences. Tests take place on campus, which means testing in familiar surroundings. Sheridan welding students get a discounted rate, making this one of the most affordable ways to earn welding certifications.

Learn the best way to find a welding job

In the classroom, you’ll learn how to conduct a job search, maintain proper work documentation and communicate effectively on the job. You’ll also study industrial practices in areas such as:

  • Metallurgy (chemical processes)
  • Safety
  • Blueprints and construction documents
  • Layout and fabrication
  • Trade calculations
  • Welding theory

Study in modern facilities with certified faculty

You’ll learn in welding workshops that mimic the professional workplace, from some of the most highly certified faculty in the Greater Toronto Area. Your instructors combine years of teaching experience with decades of work in the welding industry. With Sheridan’s small class sizes, you’ll be sure to get one-on-one instruction and mentoring.

Prepare for work in a welding apprenticeship

When you graduate, you’ll be qualified for an apprenticeship as a welder, boilermaker, pipefitter, steamfitter, millwright or sheet-metal mechanic. Sheridan has a strong reputation in the industry for producing well-rounded graduates who can be effective on the job from day one. You may also choose to learn more by continuing directly into the final year of our Welding and Fabrication Technician diploma.
