Great teachers hands on teaching was every helpful. Learned how to read blueprints showed how to properly run beads. The hardest part was dealing with the heat and the hot metal.

Yes there was a good combination of classroom and Hands-On learning where I was successful at making career decisions before training was completed. The hardest part of the training was the very beginning because I was so excited to see how Welding would work out for me, and also with me not knowing how the trade really applied to the real world like I really had no clue the first couple of days to a week but after research and classroom videos I achieved what I was yearning for . A typical day of training was fun until that rod gets to sticking or that puddle don't form right , until you exercise clams and focus everything is good. I learned a few tricks to the trade I learned combination Welding , the best part of Welding is seeing the Flux peel off.
