CAS 210/CTE 210 - Employability Skills and Customer Service. Three credit hours. This course is designed to help students/potential
employees recognize and develop positive personal qualities in preparation for successful employment. It also focuses on the
communication skills, customer service skills, effective interpersonal skills, productivity, ethical standards, and career development that are
in demand by employers.
WELD 110 - Introduction to Welding. Four credit hours. Provides an introduction and orientation to the welding industry and the various
cutting processes used. The course provides an in-depth study of welding hazards and discusses material data sheets along with common
safety procedures. Weld joints and weld positions are studied. Students learn the proper names of the parts of a weld and are able to
identify good welds and point out defects in bad welds. Students learn basic metal identification and metallurgy. Students learn the names
of common metal shapes. The course studies weld and metal testing techniques used in industry along with discussion of welding
certification, job opportunities, business opportunities and state and contractor licensing requirements.
WELD 115 - Print Reading. Three credit hours. Provides students with the knowledge to read and interpret blueprints and welding symbols
and transfer this knowledge to the workplace with layout tools and measuring instruments.
WELD 118 - Basic Metallurgy and Weld Testing Applications. Three credit hours. This course is designed to give students a basic
understanding of metal science and its relation to testing and design. The course will cover mechanical and chemical properties that are
