The Certificate of Achievement in Robotic Welding Automation provides training to gain the technical and applied skills required to perform advanced programming and operational tasks as per the American Welding Society standards and specifications for robotic welding. The program prepares students for jobs in industry including but not limited to Computer-Controlled Machine Tool Operators for Metal and Plastic and Computer Numerically Controlled Machine Tool Programmers for Metal and Plastic. There are fees associated with the courses in this program totaling $40.00. Students will also need to provide all PPE safety gear (personal protective gear) required to safely perform SMAW welds in the lab.
5-10 students in the program per year.
1. Safely operate common robotic welding automation systems while performing basic programming and welding functions.
The basic occupational competencies students will acquire will include: acquire the basic understanding of welding required to setup a robotic welding automation system; learn the basic and intermediate skills required to program robotic welding automation systems; acquire a basic understanding of metallurgy as it relates to welding; be able to interpret welding symbols and drawings required for entry into the welding and metal fabrication industry; be prepared for an entry level position operating a robotic welder.
Due to Guided Pathway efforts, Long Beach City College is sending low unit Certificates of Accomplishment (12-17.5 units) to the Chancellor’s Office for approval. Once approved, these already-existing programs will become Certificates of Achievement and will allow the College to better serve students and assist in streamlining and increasing completions.
