Structural Fitters fabricate, position, align, and fit parts of structural metal products. The best job opportunities for these workers are in the manufacturing sector, particularly in growing
high-technology industries, such as aerospace and electro-medical devices. Those with welding skills will have the best opportunities.
This course is designed to teach students to use the tools and techniques needed to become fitters in the field of welding. A heavy emphasis will be placed on the lab portion of the course. Students will use blueprints to fabricate and weld real projects within given tolerances. Students will learn to use geometry and trigonometry to solve layout problems. Fitters are needed in various fields, including commercial construction, fabrication, and industrial maintenance.
