Welcome to the "Agricultural and Commercial Metals Technology" program site.  The goal of this program is to train students to become successful entry-level welders. 

Students in this program have the opportunity to earn a welding certification by passing the American Welding Society (AWS) D1.1 Structural Steel welding tests.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in FFA and SkillsUSA activities and contests on the local, state and national levels.

For the past eight years, 2007-2015, 100% of the Welding students who attempted the AWS Certification test have passed it in the 3G position.
