Journeyman Welder II
Journeyman Welder II Program Overview
Delta Tech's Journeyman Welder II Program equips students with the know-how and experience to start entry-level careers as welders and pipefitters. The Journeyman Welder II program is an additional 10 weeks/250 hours more than the Journeyman Welder Program, and offers further training in hands-on fitting and rigging.
In the interactive, hands-on Journeyman Welder II Program, students will step into welding labs that are similar to professional welding shops. Under the guidance of instructors with real-world experience, students learn about SMAW and TIG processes, as well as MIG and flux core welding methods, through hands-on instruction and interaction. Graduates will be well-versed in manufacturing, blueprint reading, and safety in the shop and the field.
Students will receive Delta Tech welding certifications (see Delta Tech Journeyman Welder II Certifications section below) and, upon meeting graduation requirements of the program, the student will receive a diploma.
