We teach welding and related technical skills efficiently. We are committed to making these skills broadly available to everyone. Minors must be accompanied by an adult, we teach clients aged fifteen and older.
We strive to be the most accessible welding instructional facility in the state. We specialize in working with beginners.
We do not offer technical certification. Our classes are intended to help you develop specific competencies efficiently, rather than offering more general long term instruction as is done in a technical college. Please refer to the F.A.Q. for more detail.
Please avoid taking an advanced class, particularly TIG on aluminum if you have no prior welding experience. Thanks for joining us!
We start clients with Metal Inert Gas welding, also known as M.I.G. welding or wire feed or GMAW. This is the easiest process to learn and use. It is versatile and straightforward and considerably easier to begin with than any other process.
Please refer to the CLASS CALENDAR for times dates and links to detailed class descriptions.
Begin with one of the following:
Quick Intro to Welding: A hands on practical class for beginners usually taught Friday evenings. This is a fun modestly technical class without a project focus $100
MIG Welding Intensive: This is our most popular class for beginning and intermediate students. It is a five hour class and you will be welding steel right away! $220
Private Instruction: We schedule private instruction for $280 for four hours. We are generally available for private instruction from 9 to 5 Monday through Friday. We can add a surcharge for additional parties.
After taking the MIG Welding Intensive you can enroll in our TIG welding. You must have prior welding experience to take the TIG welding classes. The Mig Welding intensive is also a prerequisite to enrollment in our metal club or the practice and projects class.
Practice and Projects: Returning students can enroll in the practice and projects classes to continue to develop their hand skills and grasp of theory and technique. Clients may work on their own small project. Class is $70 plus consumables.
Team Building: Our Team building exercises are intended for persons with no prior experience. Build bridges, then destroy them. We ask for payment in full prior to the event. We will refund in full given 48 hours notice.
Project Based Classes: We hope to offer more elaborate classes like furniture making. These would be offered at a lower hourly rate overall and scheduled over several months.
Custom Classes: Sometimes clients have a particular interest in a class we do not offer frequently or routinely. We encourage you to let us know if you want to take a class you do not see offered. We are happy to teach subjects that are less in demand like aluminum sand-casting, automotive body welding, aluminum mig welding, cnc plasma cutting and general fabrication. Classes will generally be $30 per person per hour plus materials if applicable. We are working on a scheduling system to accommodate this, any date and time not currently scheduled for a class is available for custom classes. We can also provide instruction at your place of work, just email us at and let us know what you would like to do.
