1. 40-hour basic wirefeed welding. This class is offered monthly and generally held in the evenings.

2. The Training Place offers training, procedures, testing and welder/operator qualifications in mild steel, aluminum, stainless and carbon pipe. Training and certification is generally held weekdays and by appointment.

VRTEX virtual welding training. Virtual welding is a cost effective option for training because it doesn't include the costly inputs in normal "arcs and sparks" training. The Training Place will make available the virtual welder to be used in school classrooms or businesses.
