Tulsa Welding School is very excited to announce that the Tulsa Welding School & Technology Center in Houston, Texas, is now open and currently enrolling students for classes beginning December 8th, 2014. The Houston campus will be the first Texas campus under the TWS name, and the third nationwide. All three Tulsa Welding School locations offer welding training to skilled trades students.
Tulsa Welding School in Houston will offer two vocational training programs, Welding Specialist and Welding Specialist with Pipefitting, at its 66,000 square foot campus. The educational facilities include 60 welding lab booths, a pipefitting lab, new equipment, three classrooms, a student commons area, and office areas offering student support. The Welding Specialist program can be completed in as little as 7 months, and the Welding Specialist with Pipefitting program can be completed in 9 ½ months, so that students can enter the job market in a timely manner.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the Houston metropolitan area has the largest employment of welders and related skilled trades careers of any major metropolitan area in the country. The Houston Business Journal says this is because of the high number of construction projects in the area. Staffing firms in Houston cited welding positions as the most difficult temporary staffing position to fill because the construction boom has put a strain on skilled trades resources. Tulsa Welding School is happy to open a campus in a location in which welding students may have plentiful opportunities for work after training. TWS is proud to continue a tradition of training welders through hands-on application and guidance from professional, experienced instructors.
Tulsa Welding School Tradition

TWS also provides a variety of student resources, such as part-time job assistance, military tuition, GED assistance, financial aid for those who qualify, and student housing assistance. The other two TWS locations are in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Jacksonville, Florida.
The Houston campus is located at 243A Greens Rd., just east of I-45 and north of Beltway 8/Sam Houston Pkwy. It is in the Greenspoint area, about 14 miles north of the city center.
