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.

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.

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!
