Canadian Welding Skills began in 1993, when Jonathan Bennett recognized the need for private instruction in the welding industry. While the traditional colleges were offering welding courses, they were combined with so many other classes that students lacked enough true, hands-on practice.
A new, expanded facility in Ennismore, Ontario was developed in 2009, providing for a larger space and more welding booths…but our commitment remains the same – small class sizes, hands-on training.
Although there are several welding processes, Canadian Welding Skills focuses on the four major types in demand:
- SMAW (Shielded Metal Arc Welding or Stick Welding)
- GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding or MIG welding)
- FCAW (Flux Cored Arc Welding)
- GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding or TIG Welding)
Welding instruction is available for both entry-level welders in the registered ten and fifteen week programs, as well as upgrades to experienced welders. Corporate welding instruction continues to be an important part of the Canadian Welding Skills offering.
