I couldn’t be happier! I was given every opportunity a student could ask for and more. In my time at Canadian Welding Skills I learned a tremendous amount, and when I wanted to learn other techniques the instructors were there ready and willing. I would recommend Canadian Welding Skills to others.

Thanks for everything Joey, Charlotte, Scott, Tracey and Jackie. I could not have achieved this alone.

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.
