School Notes:

TWS was founded in 1949 by two pipeline welders who recognized the strong demand for pipeline welders. Over more than 50 years, TWS has evolved into an educational institution that prepares students for welding and inspection careers in a multitude of welding specialties and applications. TWS in Tulsa started its Associate degree program in welding technology effective February 1998. The Master Welder program prepares a graduate for entry level positions in structural, pipe, thin alloy, and pipeline welding. Key welding processes include SMAW, GMAW, GTAW, FCAW, and high frequency GTAW. The program contains ten training phases of three weeks each. Structural Welder contains five of the Master Welder phases. This program prepares a graduate to weld on structures (plate surfaces) using the welding processes of SMAW, GMAW and FCAW. Associate of Occupational Studies in Welding Technology degree consists of the Master Welder program for the first-seven months. The new TWS branch campus in Jacksonville, Florida opened November 2001 to provide welder training. Programs in welding match those in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The college is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology.
