    Great program

    The program was fast, almost to fast. It flew by. Good school if you stay in the booth and behind the hood. The instructors give you the chance to lean it’s up to you to make it happen. I’m currently on my 3rd job and the employers seem to be thrilled with the skill I have learned here at TWS

    Great experience

    I’m very thankful for the knowledge and the experience that I gained in the EMT program, I was taught the necessary skills I needed to be successful in the HVAC field. I want to take the time to shoot out Mr. Reid for showing me the way and teaching me to be a service tech and not a helper. I’m grateful for competing in SKILL USA representing TULSA OF JAX and placing in the state finals. The career service department work so hard with job placement thanks MARCEL for everything. THANKS TWS

    Awesome program!

    This program was an amazing experience! All the teachers loved their job and loved helping their students. After school I had a job within the next month. And now I’m doing a job I love everyday. With great pay of course! If I ever go bad to Florida I will definitely be stopping in to see everyone and share my experiences.

    Mediocre to Master

    If you want to succeed in welding this is the place to be. I’ve been through 3 years of welding school (excluding this school) and 1 year on the job. That doesn’t amount to much to some people but I’ve had my fair amount of welding instructors. The instructors at TWS Jacksonvile are the best of the best. You only get 7 months with them but they become your brothers and if you listen to them you cannot fail. Once I graduated I sat at home for 3 days and on the forth day I started a great welding job that I still have today. Just remember 2 things, practice makes perfect and hood time is good time.

    Awesome Experience

    I was able to complete the program in 9 months after re-phasing phases 2 & 4. I was in the afternoon shift so it was really neat to be able to learn from and have the perspective of two different instructors both in the lab and in the classroom. All seemed more than knowledgable in the welding process they were teaching at the time and I never had an instructor that wasn’t more than willing to teach one on one or work with me through break time. The career services department has also done a great job at always keeping me updated with the latest job opportunities, their awesome! I don’t give five stars for the same reason the instructors don’t give out perfect grades. There’s always room for improvement. That being said it was a much better experience than I anticipated and I still miss being there with all the staff and instructors and would highly and gladly recommend it to anyone looking at becoming a certified welder.

    Awesome experience and great instructors

    My time at the school and money was well spent. The instructors have the willingness to show you how to do the project and spend time with you if you need the extra help. The school administration always does their best to make every students time at the school well worth it and try to help everyone with their individual needs. I would recommend the school to anyone looking to get into the welding industry

    Awesome experience

    I learned a lot, great instructors, awesome experience, I learned a lot about the knowledge and the skill of welding. I completed the professional welder program in 7 months. Anytime I had a question the instructor was right there to help. I loved every minute of it. I work at shop welding parts and tanks for A large company and what I learned from TWS helped me in every way that helped me on my weld test applying what I learned and helped me land a welding job I love every minute of my job and having my hood down all day. I am very glad and proud to say that I am a TWS graduate 2016

    I take my hat off to the instructors that realize they learn from students just as much as we learn from them

    This is coming from a guy that knew absolutely nothing about welding before enrolling in tws I was able to complete this program due to the help of 2 great instructors that pushed & believed in me I was on the verge of being dropped but they weren’t going for that and continued to push and work with me until I got my thrive back and was able to bend out on all my final projects.. looking back I wish I would’ve known that they charge you $300 for every rephase not faulting tws because I realized that you get out what you put into this program the help& assistance is there you just have to handle your business while there. As my favorite instructor would say “If you ain’t burning, you ain’t learning”

    Awesome Experience!!

    I completed the program in 7 months and it was an amazing experience! The teachers really helped me and motivated me when I doubted myself. This school offers a great program and I’m so happy I got my Welding Specialist Certification here. If I had to do it all over again, I would definetly choose Tulsa Welding School again.

    It was a good experience

    It was a really good experience I didn’t know one thing about welding and by the end of the corse I learned a lot about it and how to weld. They have some pretty good instructors.

    Great school, Great experience would do it again in a heartbeat

    I came in knowing nothing whatsoever about welding and after the very first day in the lab I knew it was all worth the sacrifice. Of course nothing comes easy success always comes after hard work. Before I attended I saw some negative reviews only to realize that the majority of those people are dropouts that just expect things to be handed to them. All you have to do is show up, listen, learn and keep at it until you get it right. Some instructors seemed cocky at first but I realized later that they’re not trying to down talk you or screw you over on your grade, they’re just telling you in all honesty what your beads are rated. Now I actually appreciate the tougher instructors because it just made me a better welder.
    Career services is awesome but they can only do so much. Students expect to just sit on their ass and land a job but it doesn’t work that way. Tws will go e you some leads but its up to you to persue them. Only few things I didn’t like is a few instructors just there sitting around not trying to help students and just collecting their paychecks but its only a few, there’s way more good than bad. Another thing is I would’ve liked some kind of course that guides you on what to charge on small jobs just to give you an idea on how to set your rates. All in all I highly recommend this school to anyone

    Good experience, learn a large variety of welding methods

    There were many excellent instructors who were willing to take the time to teach one on one. I learned all the common welding methods and have used almost all of my knowledge on the job. One of the few schools that teaches downhill pipe welding. I wouldn’t have been able to take a two year welding course, so I was glad to be able to get it done in about 7 months. I now have an excellent job TIG welding pipe in the oil/energy industry.

    Most important choice of my life

    Tulsa welding school in Jacksonville Florida is the sole reason for my progression as a professional. Not only did it give me a very valuable trade, but also showed me what it takes to make it in the field with outstanding instructors. Although I did not take the school as serious as I should while I attended I was still able to turn my welding into a career for a life time. I am currently a Team lead at Great Dane trailers in statesboro making $20 an hours. This seemed unattainable before attending Tulsa. Now I look at it as only the beginning.

    A road to success.

    My name is William Guerrero-Pena and I attended TWS because I wanted a career with a immediate impact. I saw alot of friends, coworkers that have degrees , owe alot of student loans and doing the same i am doing. I didn’t want to go back to school and end up having a degree that is useless to me and don’t impact me financially in a positive way. Also, I am 39 years old, and i need something i can study which is short, sweet and i can make alot of money. i have graduated as a Pipefitter and my options are great. TWS is a great place to learn a trade and believe me, it was over in no time. I have learned alot, especially if I wasn’t a hands on person. My teacher was awesome!!
    I would recommend TWS to anyone. If you aren’t a handyman, don’t worry. Shop time will definitely mold you into someone that is comfortable in what you are doing.

    Thank you TWS for giving me the opportunity to make a impact on my life. Now it’s up to me.
    And guess what, the sky is the limit!

    The TWS JAX Experience

    In my endeavors of welding through schools, occupations, and military service, Tulsa Welding School has benefited me by way of having hands on instruction from peers/instructors as far as the best method, technique, and personal attitude needed in today’s industrial working environment. Each and every instructor I had gave me a personalized, situation oriented breakdown of different circumstances I may/will or have encountered in the welding world. I truly believe I am a better man and professional because of their dedication to each and every student including myself. When I began this in depth tour of instruction I had no idea I would learn as much or have such a strategy based career ahead of me. After the sweat and the hard work at the end of the day evaporated, I found myself ahead of the curve, working along side two other Tulsa grads in an extremely important job site here in Europe. A job site that affects the entire world in one way or another. This school has provided me with the additional skills needed to further myself in my welding career, all that’s required is a good attitude, positive outlook, and exceptional work ethic. All of the credit goes to each and every instructor I had, as well as every single office administrator that helped me get there, stay there, and provide me with the skills needed to become the successful welder I am. Thank you all!!!

    Regards,
    Matt Burns

    P.S.
    Some sweat and hardwork required

    TWS professional welding course

    My name is Daniel Miller I attended TWS from Jan to Aug 2012 I enjoyed my time there and learned a lot about welding. The instructors were very knowledgeable and most of them went out of their way to help students that asked for advice and actually wanted to be good at welding. I tested for a company at TWS and had a welding job that I started working at as soon as I graduated. Overall I believe it is a good program.

    TWS review

    TWS was a great experience for me, though I was in the first graduation class and they were still a little rough around the edges trying to get things up and running properly, they still managed to teach and provide the learning material I used today in my job. Though the students could use a little more accessibility there (with getting supplies and materials (coupons, rods, grinding disc and wire wheels)) it’s a great program and I’m am always proud when I tell a fellow employee or anybody who ask where I graduated from, I always reply with a smile on my face “Tulsa welding school”.

    Excellent Program

    I had some doubts when I first arrived at Tulsa Welding School. I had zero experience in any type of industrial work but that did not matter. I soon realized that it was okay that I had no experience and we were there to learn. The instructors were very helpful showing multiple demos and really getting to the root of a problem and explaining how to correct it. I know I have a lot more to learn to become the welder I want to be; but I will be forever grateful to Tulsa Welding School, the instructors, and my classmates who laid the foundation for an excellent career!

    Great school

    It was a great school I learned everything I needed to know to get in the field, the instructors are the best at what they do, they will go above and beyond to help you out all you have to do is ask they are always there for you, and the carear services department are great they will do whatever they have to do to help you get a job they are very hard working people, the Dean and president are both great guys if you have any problems they will resolve it very quick so you can get back to learning your new trade, you can always go back and practice anytime for free once you have graduate witch is awesome, no other school allows you to do that I am very glad to say I am a TWS graduate of 2015.
