Clean Air WeldStation™ Welding Booths at Ranken Technical College
Due to high demand from both students and employers, Ranken Technical College is offering a Fabrication and Welding Technology program in a brand new state-of-the-art facility with the industry leading Clean Air America WeldStation™ Welding Booths. These WeldStation™ Systems capture the welding smoke, filter and return the cleaned air back into the facility, protecting the students, the welding instructors as well as keeping the building nice and clean.
The curriculum includes oxy-fuel cutting, Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW). The theory for each of these processes is discussed along with proper joint design and proper welding techniques.
Certificate of Technology
Blueprint reading and welding symbol interpretation are practiced throughout the course. The welding is done on plate and pipe on low carbon steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Several certification tests are offered in SMAW, GMAW and GTAW.
For students interested in furthering their education, these courses are creditable toward our Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and Bachelor of Science in Applied Management (BSAM) degrees.
Evening Program Certificate in Fabrication and Welding
The evening program curriculum for Fabrication and Welding includes oxy-fuel cutting, Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW). The theory for each of these processes is discussed along with proper joint design and proper welding techniques.
