Welder A-B Modular

Welders use manual or semi-automatic welding equipment to fuse metal pieces together. They use flame-cutting, brazing and soldering equipment, melting and fusing pieces to be joined to form a permanent bond. They also use metal shaping machines such as brakes, shears and other metal straightening and bending machines.

Welders - Level B build on Welder Foundation training (formerly Level C) and are capable of welding ferrous and non-ferrous metals in all positions, on both plate and/or pipe, using SMAW, GTAW, and FCAW processes. These welders qualify to test for Portable Pressure Welding Procedure (PWP) tests in British Columbia.

Welders - Level A have advanced training, skills and abilities to weld all materials, including specialized alloys, by any manual welding process, in any position.

Welder is a nationally designated trade under the Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program.

Recommendations

Grade 10 or equivalent education is recommended (Grade 12 preferred).


Two separate Welder program pathways are available to students: an Apprenticeship model comprising Levels 1-to-3, with an optional Multi-Process Alloy Welding (MPAW) endorsement, and the non-apprentice programs of "Welder B and A".


1. Students without an employer sponsor may register in the Welder Foundation (formerly Level C) program. If they are unable to secure a sponsor they can continue in the non-apprentice pathway (Welder B, then A).

2. Students with an employer sponsor will follow the Welder Apprentice pathway. Those that have already completed Welder Foundation are eligible to begin at Level 3.
