I learned so much, not just about welding but about myself in general. Everyone on staff was so supportive and helpful and I feel I’ve gained the skills and confidence to achieve anything I wish to. This was beyond what I hoped for and was truly a fantastic experience.

Canadian Welding Skills is an amazing school. They are incredibly knowledgeable and so helpful. They are super supportive and I never once felt out of place even though I had no prior welding experience. They make you feel like family. I am truly sad my time is over.

CWS is definitely the best school I’ve ever attended. The staff and shop atmosphere were perfect. I will forever carry pride and the skills I learned with me.  I would be in the booth as long as I could because there is always something to learn here.

— Craig McPherson - Pressure Pipe Program April 2021- Entry Level Program

CWS is everything you could ask for at a school. The instructors are fantastic and are so helpful with anything and everything. I looked forward to coming here every day because it is such a great atmosphere to learn . Thank you for everything!

All the staff and instructors are amazing people who always have a smile on the face first thing in the morning! Whenever I had a question , or wanted the instructors to show me something, I got an answer or a demo. I absolutely loved my 10 weeks here and I recommend anyone who wants to learn welding to come here. I learned more here in 10 weeks than I did in 8 months at college.

— Justin MacLean June 2021- Entry Level Program

I enjoyed the program very much! The confidence I have gained, mixed with the experience I now have, will surely help me in the workforce! I recommend anyone wanting to become a welder to attend this program!
