Burgaw Center

Welding Program

Continuing Education offers a segmented welding program at the Burgaw Center for non-traditional credit, however, you do earn a certificate of completion for each class- MIG, STICK, and TIG. Our program is designed to prepare students for a job in industry, manufacturing, or a small shop. You will pay for your certification test with AWS upon identifying what you want to be certified in specifically.

Our program is 6 months or less and is less than $1100. We have a limited seating capacity of 10. Each class is $185 and you only pay for one class at a time. All classes are ready for registration. There is no financial aid. Day classes are 9 am-3 pm and evening classes are 5:30-10:30 pm and meet TWTH. You do not have to apply with CFCC, do the RSD, or anything formal to sign up. No transcripts are needed. You will pay for each class as you take it. We are located at 100 East Industrial Drive, Burgaw NC 28425.

This is not part of the curriculum. These classes are not transferable.

When Scott Wick left Maryland 10 years ago, he knew he had to change more than his address. Seeking a “recession proof” career, and undaunted by a lack of experience in the field, Wick decided to give welding a shot. Wick, now a Vertex Railcar welder, says that, “I couldn’t have had a better instructor and all the gear was right there. All the supplies, fully stocked and very hands on.” Instructor Al Meadowcroft couldn’t be more proud. “Scott is successful because he came to class every day. His consistency brought results.”
