Welding

The Emily Griffith Technical College Welding program will provide you with the skills necessary to be certifiable for any type of welding employment. We offer training in areas no other program in Colorado covers such as exotic metals including magnesium, titanium and copper just to name a few. Welding processes covered are Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) often referred to as stick welding, Oxy-Fuel welding often referred to as OFW welding, Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) often referred to as MIG welding, Flux Cored Arc Welding, Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) often referred to as TIG welding, open plate, and pipe welding. All curriculum exceeds current American Welding Society standards. Our welding programs include all processes and will train you in the ability to weld in any position. Completion of any level results in receiving an AWS wallet card.

From our teachers...

I started the Phlebotomy Program here 15 years ago. Phlebotomy is a great field that can open many doors; new opportunities can arise depending on how far a student wants to extend themselves.
