Programs for Highly-Skilled Craft Trade Workers

The welding department at Florence-Darlington Technical College is proud to provide training programs for craft trade workers. The Pipe Welding, Pipe Fitting, and Valve Technology certifications are integral to major projects and can usually be found working together as a team at construction sites, nuclear power plants during maintenance outages, and other major projects. These programs are focused on training our community to be highly-skilled craft trade workers in high-demand fields.

Weather Statement

Should it become necessary to cancel classes due to inclement weather or other emergencies, announcements will be made through local radio and television stations.

How to Watch A Good Class Disappear

Most of our classes are cost-recovery and we need a minimum number of students enrolled early to keep the program running. When too many people wait until the last minute to register, great classes taught by excellent instructors get cancelled.
Don't be disappointed - REGISTER EARLY!
