Everything from the welding instructors to the people running behind the scenes was outstanding. There was nothing about the program I didn’t like!

Great program with amazing instructors. I have been and will continue to recommend this program to others. All the one- on-one attention and guidance was very helpful and definitely the reason I did so well.

— Sean Pedlar August 2023- Entry Level Program

I have been thoroughly impressed by, not only the level of professionalism, but also the level of hospitality. The knowledge and kindness staff displayed on numerous occasions, and their passion for teaching and welding, translated into a cohesive and efficient learning environment . My time here has been delightful and insightful, therefore I cannot recommend this program enough!

— Kieran Dance September 2023- Entry Level Program

I really enjoyed my time here. Everyone was extremely helpful from the moment I reached out about a “try and tour”. I have already recommended this school to friends and will continue to do so.

Despite being a short program, instructors always take the time to show how to improve and new ways to challenge yourself.

This program was a very beneficial experience. As someone who has never liked school I loved this program and would recommend it to everyone. The teachers and staff were amazing and the shop is very well organized.

— Lucas Murdock April 2024- Entry Level Program

Everyone from the girls in the office to the instructors on the floor were great to be around. An amazing place to learn and grow as a person.

— Doug Balson April 2024- Entry Level Program

Very well structured course to prepare students to be job ready. I had zero complaints as I worked my way through the program. The staff at CWS are incredible and I would happily recommend to anybody interested in the welding trade.
