Next Up: Apprenticeship or Modular

The Welding Foundation program prepares students to enter the Welder Apprenticeship training program. BC currently supports two streams for welder training: Modular and Apprenticeship.

There are two pathways for progression beyond the Welding Foundation/Welder C level:

  • Apprenticeship Training Option: Students with an employer sponsor will progress to Welder Apprentice Level 3, followed by the (optional) Specialty Metals Endorsement; or
  • Modular Training Option: Students without an employer sponsor will progress to Welder Level B followed by Welder Level A. Although modular levels Welding C, B and A are still available in some institutions, they are being replaced by the new Welder Apprenticeship training model, effective March 31, 2014.

When you are ready to pursue further training beyond the Welding Foundation , search Training schedule details provided by the BC Trades Training Consortium (TTC). Contact the school directly for the next opening.
