Program Overview

The Metal Fabrication Technician (welder-fitter) program at Sault College will provide you with the thorough knowledge and understanding needed in the fields of welding and fabricating. The first year of this two-year program concentrates on covering welding techniques, while the second year focuses on more in-depth knowledge related to how to build structures made of metal. During your education, you will be taught how to safely and effectively lay out and then build the parts needed for large projects like bridges, buildings, towers and platforms. You will also learn how to construct and repair steel stairs, boilers, tanks, chutes, hoppers, stacks, and other assemblies and steel structures. Skilled instructors will teach you how to successfully plan interesting projects, quote the costs of materials needed, and use state-of-the-art equipment to make parts for projects with varying degrees of difficulty and assemble them.
