Welding is a one-year certificate program offered at all four Saskatchewan Polytechnic campuses in Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon. Build knowledge and skills in operating welding equipment and performing basic welding operations. 


If you’re interested in a hands-on trade, check out Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Welding program. We’ll get you started on a career that offers a lot of options, great mobility and excellent pay.

Welders are in high demand—in oil and gas, mining, manufacturing and construction. You need to be good with your hands and enjoy working with tools. You also need to be a problem-solver and a team player who’s able to follow instructions.

You’ll get hands-on instruction in:

  • cutting processes
  • gas metal arc, gas tungsten arc, shielded metal arc welding
  • general shop practice and shop safety
  • operating fabrication equipment
  • oxy/acetylene fusion welding
  • quality assurance
  • using blueprints

Our Shop is Your Classroom

You’ll spend 75% of your time in Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s well-equipped shops learning from highly qualified instructors. You’ll learn to work on your own and as part of a team. You’ll also develop the quality assurance and shop safety practices employers look for when recruiting apprentices.
