The DACC Welding Technology program is nationally accredited by the
American Welding Society (AWS), and is taught by nationally qualified instructors.
Together, DACC welding instructors have more than 100 years of
experience and more than 90 AWS/ASME national welder certifications on
five welding processes. The program is competency and performance based, consisting of lectures
and hands-on laboratory exercises. Students learn to weld steels, stainless
steels, and aluminum alloy plate and pipe with five welding processes.
They also learn basic fabrication skills, oxy-fuel cutting, plasma cutting, and
air-carbon arc cutting. The DACC Welding Technology Program is one of a
handful of programs, nationwide, that has an orbital TIG unit that allows
students to join tubing as small as one-quarter inch in diameter. Students are
also exposed to heat treating of steel and its effects with the heat treat oven
