Entrance into our training program is open to almost any prospective student with a desire to learn how to weld.
A high school diploma is preferred but is not necessary for individual skills training courses. However, you must have a valid high school diploma or GED to be eligible for the Combination Welder I Program. A copy of the valid high school diploma, GED or academic transcripts must be obtained for LWT records.
LWT will also accept a secondary school completion credential for homeschool from the state and accredited entity the homeschool credential was completed in.
Applicants must be 18 years or older by the first day class.
It is a requirement to have your vision tested and corrected before starting school. Proof is required from the appointment.
By signing LWT’s Enrollment Agreement at orientation the student is affirming he or she is able to perform the following physical requirements; standing for long periods of time, bending, grasping, good eyesight, moving in small areas, and able to lift 50lbs. These requirements are those of the school and may exceed in an actual work environment.
Our text, films and materials require that you can read, write, communicate and understand the English Language at a 6th grade level. If you cannot meet these requirements, please advise us so we may try to accommodate you.
Potential students are encouraged to visit the school to discuss their employment goals with the staff to help determine which course(s) best suites them. Personal interviews by phone or in person are required for admission.
