Thank You, Service Members and Veterans!

While you’re out and about celebrating National Military Appreciation Month this May, be sure to thank service members, veterans and their families. Without their courage and sacrifice, America wouldn’t have become the great nation it is today.

At Tulsa Welding School, we show our appreciation all throughout the year by providing a supportive learning environment and military tuition pricing for service members and veterans pursuing welding training or other vocational career paths. These are some of the reasons we’ve been recognized as a Military Friendly School.

As we celebrate National Military Appreciation Month 2019, all of the staff and instructors at TWS would like to thank those brave men and women who keep our country safe and free.

Thank You, Service Members and Veterans!
