Welding Fabrication 

Our Goal

The goal of El Capitan Welding Fabrication is to prepare students for a career as a heavy equipment mechanic. Power mechanics includes tractors, hydraulics, electrical systems, power trains, and diesel engines. There is a huge need for these mechanics and our program mirrors what is needed in the community. Our classes articulate with Merced College.
