Thank you to Canadian Welding Skills! They gave me the skills I need to be successful in the future for whatever employer I work for. I had a great time for the 10 weeks I spent here. Joey was an amazing teacher, always helped me no matter what and encouraged me to be my very best self. The team is amazing, everyone did a great job and made me feel like I was at home. It really is a family here.

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.
