Class Offerings Welding Plan of Study: Career Opportunities Four Year Plan Postsecondary Education


Maybe you have been thinking about pursuing a career in Engineering, Computers, Racing, or Aerospace? Or maybe you would like to build skyscrapers? Welding skills can take you there. You can ride welding skills toward a broad range of futures including Teaching, Sales, Construction, Robotics, and many more. A career in Welding can earn salaries ranging from $15 an hour all the way up to $100 an hour and beyond.

The Welding Classes at Minot High, taught by Ray Helseth, prepare students for entry level employment in a broad range of production occupations. Students taking both Welding I and Welding II classes will gain skills in reading blueprints, gas welding, shielded metal arc, gas metal arc, flux cored arc, gas tungsten arc welding, and plasma arc cutting.

Pictured on the left: Many people believe that welding is a guy thing, but who do you think went into the shipyards to do the welding when the men went off to W.W.II? Welding experts say that women sometimes make better welders than men because their hands are generally steadier.

Project Proposal Request Form

Each year, the Minot Public School's Trades programs look for community/nonprofit projects for their students to complete as they use the knowledge and skills learned throughout the year. Students will supply the labor. All materials and supplies will be the requesting agency's responsibility. Donations are appreciated and will be used to fund student leaders and return the application.

1717 - Welding I (2 credits): Train for an entry-level job in the welding industry. Students will learn basic skills practicing Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG) and Shielded Metal Arc Welding (STICK), oxy-fuel cutting and brazing. Technical information about the welding trade such as applied math, blue print reading and symbols, safety, and general construction will be integrated into the curriculum. Workplace readiness skills will also be addressed. Coveralls of 100% cotton and safety glasses are required to protect students and meet safety standards. (Open to grades 11 & 12).

1718 - Welding II (2 credits): Further your skills in advanced welding. In addition to gas and shielded metal arc welding, students will practice Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (TIG), Flux-cored Arc welding and complete an industry bend test in each process. Constructing community projects and advanced print reading will be a part of the course. Students interested in manufacturing, energy, transportation, and construction careers, would benefit from this class. (Prerequisite-1717 Welding I) Coveralls of 100% cotton and safety glasses are required to protect students and meet safety standards. (Open to grade 12).

1751 - Internship for Trades & Industry Education (1/2 credit per semester): An internship may be a paid or unpaid work experience in which a student is teamed with a company or organization in order to extend classroom learning. A specific training plan will be developed with the employer for each student consistent with the student’s related classroom instruction and occupational goals. On-site visits will take place during the student’s placement. Those involved in the internship program must be currently or previously enrolled in a Trades & Industry class. In addition to the internship, students must be enrolled in six classes (junior year) or five classes (senior year) plus physical education. (Open to grades 11 & 12)
