You want to learn to weld? Take the time and make the effort. Stay late and be dedicated, the resources are there, met some cool instructors that helped me with anything I needed and gave me great advice for being prepared when the time would come for me to test for a job. I attended 2014-2015 within a week of graduating I landed an awesome job, it wasn’t easy staying late every day 10-15 hours straight when I was tired I really had to push myself to stay and practice even if I was doing good I wanted to be better. Let them party while you grind the difference will show in the end.
