The instructors are very professional, but most importantly passionate, about teaching students to live up to their potential. They are filled with knowledge regarding all aspects of welding and they provide their students with the constructive criticism and motivation necessary to succeed in the trade.

All staff members were very helpful in all parts of the program. I looked forward to coming in everyday and very much enjoyed the 15 weeks I have been here. I am sad to be leaving but looking forward to starting work with the new skills I’ve learned.
