Students who were placed in this program as a first choice must have their uniform on the first day of class, Sept. 5th, 2023.
Students who were placed in this program as a 2nd or 3rd choice: if you do not receive information that a spot has opened up in your preferred program by September 15th, please place your order for this program’s uniform.
If your uniform is on back order or this was your 2nd/3rd choice and you are waiting to see if you get into your first choice:
Please wear a plain, no graphics or picture, shirt that matches the color of your program's uniform and professional looking pants (no rips or holes etc.).
All students will also need:
- Welding Cap (available at Oxarc but you may purchase from any vendor) (sample)
- Leather work boots (Steel toe recommended)
- Welding Wire cutters /Pliers (For picking up hot steel) (sample)
Recommended but not required:
Auto Darkening Welding Hood
Basic welding hoods can be provided for students if necessary, but your instructor recommends his students purchase their own welding hood. Students with auto-darkening hoods seem to have more initial success learning the welding processes.
The welding hood will not be required for the first 2 weeks of class.
We will discuss this further the first week of class during safety and orientation.
