Welding Training Program

UEI’s Welding Training Program is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and hands-on training that is necessary to become an entry-level welder. The program focuses on providing students with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of welding.

The program covers metal cutting, brazing, Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW), and welding safety.

Not only do students graduate understanding the fundamentals of welding, but they are able to put what they’ve learned into practice thanks to the hands-on training in a real-life welding environment offered by the program.

Even if you’ve never welded before, consider enrolling in the program as our instructors will guide you through the program no matter your skill level.

Our Welder Training Program is taught by experienced instructors with extensive experience in the welding field. Additionally, our Welding Training Course is hybrid, meaning the program combines online classes with both on-site classes and labs. Additionally, classes are available during both the day and evening, making it easier than ever before for students to complete and graduate from the program in less than one year.
