The Gladiator Welding Program
The Gladiator Welding Program is an innovative not-for-credit cohort-based workforce development program that seeks to train residents of the historically disadvantaged Southwest Fresno community for a career in the in-demand field of welding. The program is funded by the Transformative Climate Communities (TCC) grant and is a partnership between SCCCD, The City of Fresno and VOICE, a community based 501c3 non-profit. Over 5 months of accelerated training, students gain the skills and knowledge they need to have a successful career as a welder. The program is offered at no cost to the student. Program completers will have the opportunity to gain their AWS certification in MIG, TIG and ARC welding.
