Students receive credit in the Welding Provincial Standard Log Book upon completion of Multi-Process Alloy Welding (MPAW). Over and above the program units, students may be expected to participate in projects and, in such cases, prepare materials and steel for the college. The time frame is 5 weeks for this level. There are several intakes offered each year.
This program is an optional endorsement over and above completion of Welder Level 3 with Red Seal Endorsement.
