Your Career

Canada currently faces a critical shortage of skilled workers. Skilled tradespeople will be increasingly in demand because of the rapid pace of technological changes and as current workers in the field begin to retire. According to the Working in Canada Report (Government of Canada), employment opportunities for licensed welders will be steady.

Graduates of this program will find a range of employment opportunities through welder apprenticeship programs, as well as positions associated with manufacturing and fabricating, automotive, heavy equipment production, automation, and construction. Self-employment or working in the construction oil industry are also viable options upon graduation.

Our Facilities

Students spend the majority of their time in Humber’s Centre for Trades & Technology which features two full-sized townhomes and dedicated labs for construction, welding, hydraulic, mechanical, home renovation, plumbing, electrical, woodworking and cabinetmaking programs.

Your Future Study Options

Upon completion of this program, graduates may choose to pursue the Electrical Techniques, Plumbing Techniques, or Electromechanical Engineering Technician programs at Humber or pursue a welding apprenticeship. Graduates will have the skill set to look at many different areas in the skilled trades.
