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.
