New technologies and welding techniques are making welding more useful than ever and boosting productivity.

Pima’s Welding program uses both lecture and hands-on training to teach basic and advanced welding techniques and processes. At Pima, you will learn a variety of processes from oxygen fuel welding and cutting to automated robotic welding.
