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.
Skills You Will Learn
The Welding Training Program provides students with a foundation via online classes and on-site lab training in a fully equipped welding lab. The Welding Program teaches students basic shop skills, how to read blue prints, and safe and efficient work practices. The core of this program is the required lab training, which provides students with hands-on experience in the lab.
Students are allowed to utilize the different welding techniques they’ve learned in the lab, placing their newly learned skills to the test. Students graduate from the program with skills and hands-on training necessary for a new entry-level career as a welder.
