DUAL CREDIT OPPORTUNITIES
Dual Credit Opportunities
The Information Technology Program is pleased to partner with Vincennes University to offer college credit why simultaneously receiving high school credit.
In most instances Dual Credit is free of charge. You should contact the Guidance Counsel our or the Instructor for further information concerning this. The following Dual Credit opportunities are offered in Welding Technology. We offer new courses often so check back for an update.
This course provides a basic study and application of commonly utilized welding processes as well as additional topics such as: welding blue print reading, OSHA 10 hour and welding safety, weld joint design, welding terminology, and welding quality control. Students will prepare for their welding education,
as well as their welding career through exposure to the welding lab environment and classroom. Students will also train with the latest in Virtual
Welding Simulation. In addition, this course will prepare students to take nationally recognized certification exam(s).
