What We Do
General Welding School lays a foundation for those men and women interested in making or enhancing their career in welding. Our students are trained and prepared for immediate employment. Each student tests for appropriate welding certifications throughout their course. Our objective is to provide them with the work ethic, knowledge, skills and experiences necessary to efficiently perform on the job.

All courses include one on one booth instruction and theory modules. Certificates are awarded to all successful graduates. Courses consist of job safety, torch cutting, test procedures, plate welding all positions, pipe welding overhead position, reading drawings and basic blue prints. Some of the major benefits of choosing General Welding School are; our courses are designed with real job practices and skills to be successful in the field of welding, we train our students through a simplified one on one approach, new courses starting every Monday, job lead assistance and updating of resumes. Government funding may be available to those who qualify.
Our Goal
General Welding School continually strives to fill the void that is being left by retiring welders in the construction, fabrication and manufacturing industries. Our close association with local employers allows us to teach actual job practices being used in industry today?
“By reducing complication, while concentrating on fundamentals, work ethic and hands-on practice, we are able to provide unemployed and under employed individuals the skills needed to become successful members of the welding community. We are committed to staying current, if not ahead, with the ever-changing skill set required in the local welding industry. By studying and evaluating student learning outcomes as well as our formal goal achievements we are able to continually make the necessary adjustments to our academic programs.
Why Welding?
Welding is the most common way of permanently joining metal parts. In this process, heat is applied to metal pieces, melting and fusing them to form a permanent bond. Because of its strength, welding is used in ship building, automobile manufacturing and repair, aerospace applications, and thousands of other manufacturing activities.

Welding also is used to join beams in the construction of buildings, bridges, and other structures and to join pipes in pipelines, power plants, and refineries.Welding training is practical and immediately transferable to the workplace.

Training at The General Welding School Ltd. is based on practical methods; in-shop and classroom theory modules, both providing a full understanding on how to be a competent, knowledgeable welder. Testing leads to welding certification.

Steady employment.
Top wages and job security.

Electric Arc Welding (SMAW) is the fundamental welding process. Other more technologically advanced processes have not replaced Electric Arc as the primary process in structural welding because the electric arc process is technically suited for exterior welding. Many production companies are using Electric Arc welding in conjunction with other processes; therefore, it is beneficial for a welder to include certification in the Electric Arc process in their agenda.

Heli-Arc TIG Welding (GTAW) is a precision process that requires a high degree of skill. TIG welders are among the most competent in the industry and their wages reflect this skill. Metals that are fused together by the TIG process include ferrous and non-ferrous materials. TIG is often used in root pass welding, in pressure pipe, architectural sheet metal and the manufacture of food processing equipment.

Semi-Auto MIG Welding (GMAW) process is a Semi-Automatic process that is limited to interior welding applications. Consequently, the process is issued extensively in the manufacturing industry in areas such as mass production.

The skill required for MIG welding is substantially less than that required for other processes. Certification in the MIG welding process will give a worker the necessary qualifications to find work as an entry-level production welder in the manufacturing industry.
