The ICTC continues to follow the Governor’s Wolf’s mandate for school closures. According to the last update, all schools in the Commonwealth will remain closed indefinitely as a response to the COVID-19 mitigation efforts. ICTC has posted it’s Continuity of Education Plan in an effort to inform students and parents about our current plan of instruction.

The ICTC will continue to monitor this situation closely. We are working with sending school Districts, the ARIN IU28, post-secondary institutions and industry certification providers to assist us in offering meaningful educational opportunities to keep our students engaged in the educational process.

Welding Technology

Welding Technology

Welding has evolved into a sophisticated science and technology. Skills developed at the Indiana County Technology Center’s (ICTC) Welding Technology (WT) program are immediately transferable to either a professional career as a welder or as a student enrolled at a community/technical college, university, or other post-secondary institution. Additionally, the curriculum provides excellent preparation for those whose career goals include becoming a welding, mechanical or metallurgical engineer. The ideal candidate for this field should have good mechanical aptitude, eye-hand coordination, imagination and excellent visualization skills. Students have the opportunity to become a certified welder in accordance with the American Welding Society’s D1.1 Structural Steel Code. The students may attain a training course on a Bobcat VersaHandler Telescopic Fork Lift. Qualified students have the opportunity to earn Industry Certifications endorsed by the American Welding Society (AWS), which is a professional, international organization that guides the welding industry.
