I learned about Weltech during a trades career fair and did some research into the welding profession in the Spring of 2013. Weltech offered a comprehensive 7 week course with a strong focus on the major welding techniques, personal instruction, small class sizes, and hands on training.

I just finished the Combination Welding Program in Weldtech Training which lasted 7 weeks. The program contained : GMAW , SMAW, GTAW, and blueprint reading.

I went to Weldtech to take the welder combo course with FluxCore added on to do some upgrading and recertify. Previously, in 1998, I went to a different school and wasted 6 months and a small fortune. At my previous school, all I learned was how to pass a T.S.S.A. welding test.
