Tailored to both existing contractors and people seeking a career in a structural steel setting. We teach SMAW (stick) welding and FCAW (flux core arc welding) on plate in all positions. The skills taught will include joint configuration, joint preparation, reading welding symbols, blue print reading, base metal preheating, weld repair, electrode care and management, and how to read a welding procedure (WPS). Students will be AWS certified at the end of the course providing they pass the required welding tests. Weekly schedule is five 10-hour days. 400 hours total.
WWA transformed me from a from a fabricator in to a real pipe welder. On the first day I was given all I needed to start producing results. WWA is ready to produce the next generation of pipe welders so we can rebuild America.
By the end of the 5 month combo course you will leave with not only the skill but the confidence to go out and make an extremely successful and profitable career for yourself. I was welding in a booth the first day.
On day one I received everything I needed to get started welding and all of the highest quality materials money can buy. With in a week and half I was welding pipe!! I would recommend this school over any other.
Western Welding Academy is just what I have been looking for. I love everything about the school and what it has to offer. The challenge, the environment, the relationships, the future. The shop has top of the line welding machines and equipment.
