The Women of Steel welding program is an initiative for anyone who identifies as a woman.

This program develops the skills and knowledge you need to safely and effectively perform oxyacetylene welding, Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), and Metal Core Arc Welding (MCAW) processes and related operations.

You will spend most of the class time on practical shop work, with your remaining time on welding theory, mathematics, communications, and blueprint reading instruction.

Upon graduation, you will receive an applied certificate from Red River College Polytechnic.

Students will be tested for Canadian Welding Bureau certification in GMAW and FCAW/MCAW. Upon passing, they will receive a student ticket from Canadian Welding Bureau.

This is not an apprenticeship program but may provide credit transfer opportunities toward an apprenticeship. The Government of Manitoba, Entrepreneurship, Training and Trade offers apprenticeship training that combines on-the-job practical skills development with levels of technical training.
