Welding is classified as an evolving occupation and most likely to provide future employment growth and economic competitiveness within Texas.

LSC-CyFair helps prepare those interested in the fast-paced occupation of welding with the basic skills for entry-level employment as well as current welders in need of upgrading or documenting skills.

Three Welding Technology Certificates are available including Level 1 - Shielded Metal Arc Welding and Blueprint Reading for Welders; Level 2 -Gas Metal Arc Welding and Level 3 - Gas Tungsten Arc Welding. Some technical courses may transfer to a technology-based bachelor’s program. See an advisor on transferability details.
