About the Program

Moraine Park’s two-semester Metal Fabrication technical diploma gives students hands-on experience in fabricating metal products from start to finish. Students work on individual and team projects, as well as service-learning projects for the community.

What You'll Learn

Students also learn gas metal arc welding (GMAW); gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW); and laser, plasma and oxy-fuel cutting.

Upon completion, students are prepared to take the FMA Fundamentals of Metal Fabrication Certificate exam.
