    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 5th, please place your order for this program’s uniform.

    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.
