A welder is a person who has training in and is capable of welding ferrous and non-ferrous metals in all positions, on both plates and/or pipe, using various welding processes. Certified welders qualify for a test with CSA, BCSA, and for ASME procedures in British Columbia.
This new training model is to provide additional essential skills, job readiness skills, as well as workplace training experience to foundation students in order to enhance their skills and make them a valued employee within local industry. With the cooperation of partner companies, students will be given a work experience opportunity which will put students in a better position to acquire apprenticeship positions within industry and local employers will have had the opportunity to observe and train these students to determine if there is a desire to take them on as a continuing employee.
