Welder Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship training is for people who are currently working in industry and who are sponsored by an employer and registered with the Industry Training Authority (ITA). Apprenticeship programs combine work-based training (typically 80-85%) and technical training (15-20%) taken in a classroom and shop setting.

The length of an apprenticeship can range from one to five years, but most require four years to complete.

College of the Rockies offers all levels of Welder technical training, including Modular A, Modular B, and MPAW. Start dates for these programs vary. For program information please contact the Trades Program Admission Coordinator.
