About the Program

Our apprenticeship program includes classrooms and welding booths with a state-of-the-art AWS certified welding facility. The program is comprised of classroom lectures and testing and hands-on work in welding booths that have new welding machines, adjustable stands and fume extractors.

Welding certification testing in SMAW and FCAW in all positions. Test coupons are inspected, cut, and bend tested on site under the supervision of our CWI certified welding instructor.

We also feature “rebar city,” another hands-on training area, which includes wall, pier and mat mock-ups. Structural and metal building mock structures complete our facilities.
