“This was an excellent class for those wanting to learn the basics of wire welding. You get all the hands-on you need to start a career or hobby.”
Our training courses are designed to serve many individual skill levels and are great for all levels of experience. Participants may progress to professional welders, or use welding as part of their hobby. The training is a combination of hands-on experience and classroom theory. Our welding classes are designed to teach the skills of arc welding that employers want.
GMAW, GTAW, SMAW, Pipe Welding, Plasma cutting, and Oxy-acetylene are the most common training subjects.
Our welding training also includes blue print reading, welding symbols and metallurgy. You will not only learn to weld but learn how safely. All our courses have extensive safety training.
