    School Notes

    • Tulsa Welding School was founded in 1949 by two welders who recognized a strong demand for skilled tradesman in their industry. Over 60 years later, TWS has evolved into an educational institution that prepares students for various skilled trade careers with a multitude of specialties and applications. We train our graduates for the skills, knowledge, and the workplace attitudes that are essential when entering the professional world. Graduates who put forth the dedication, commitment to excel, and workplace experience in their welding, pipefitting, shipfitting, HVAC/R or electrical welding education, have the potential to obtain a lasting and rewarding welding career. 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. For more information about the school please visit: www.weldingschool.com
