Recent high school graduates are faced with important choices. There is enormous pressure to attend a traditional college, but for many students, this isn’t the best option. Not everyone benefits from traditional education. There is also time to consider. Some people want to train quickly for a career, and they don’t want to spend four years in a classroom.

People who have been out of high school or college for a while also face tough choices. Some people don’t enjoy being tied to a desk while others face unemployment and other external issues.

For both groups – the recently graduated and the not so recently graduated – choosing a career training program that offers a solid education in a reasonable amount of time is essential. Tulsa Welding School offers an excellent vocational training program that will have you on your way to a career in welding in just 14 months.

Why Train for A Career in Welding?

Over the past ten years, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has noted a continual demand for qualified, trained welders. Welders work in a variety of industries in every state. Some welders even work abroad or in positions that offer regular travel opportunities. Given the variety of opportunities in the field, training for a career in welding can open the doors to many different career paths.

In order to secure a position as a welder, an individual needs to complete a formal program of study and should have hands-on training. Students have many options when choosing a welding program. However, completing training quickly is a bonus for many students. Our 14 month welding program, which provides an Associates of Occupational Studies in Welding upon graduation, is an excellent way to put yourself on a new career path.
