At Arclabs, we believe in learning by doing. That’s why all our programs feature 90% or more hands-on training. And we don’t have any prerequisite courses you won’t need – the small amount of classroom work is all welding-related.

  • Fast, 90%+ hands-on specialized training
  • Advanced training on specialty metals

  • Employment-focused training and testing

Get Certifiedin the Skills Employers Are Looking For

Arclabs’ advanced training includes certification testing. During our 900 or 1,300 hour programs, you will be eligible for up to three AWS tests in structural plate and pipe. When you pass, you’ll be certified in specific processes and qualified for that position. And this doesn’t just look great on a resume – it’s proof you have the certifiable skills employers want.

Included in your tuition, we now offer the following certifications in our 900 hour and 1,300 hour training programs:

• GMAW/FCAW on 3g 3/8th plate
• SMAW/GTAW on 3g 3/8th plate
• SMAW/GTAW 6g on monster pipe coupon (1,300 hour program only)

If students are interested in taking different AWS certifications, we are an accredited testing facility (ATF) with a CWI onsite to test you in other processes and materials.

Ignite your Future. Careers in Welding

If you’re looking for a rewarding career, welding is a great choice. It’s an in-demand career that pays well and offers lots of room for growth and advancement. And unlike many other good careers, it doesn’t require years of training (and the mountain of debt that comes along with it).

Welding Is…

  1. Stable

    The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the average annual salary for welders is $41,380 ($19.89 per hour).

  2. In-demand

    The American Welding Society predicts a shortage of 375,000 trained welders by 2023.

  3. Essential

    More than 50% of American-made products, from smartphones to aircraft carriers, require the work of welders.

  4. On the rise

    There are 1.5 million workers employed in metal fabrication, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. By employment numbers, that makes it the third largest manufacturing industry in the country.
