    I’m very proud of the success I have found out of my failure period through life choices and decisions I have overcamed a huge obstacle in my life and is now headed into the right direction and with the support of the staff and Tula Welding School itself I’m totally confident that I will become an overachiever and I can say Tulsa Welding School helped redirect my life into a positive motion! So thanks😉

    What I’m most proud about is my ability to understand if I made a bad weld or done something wrong I usually know why and how to correct it for the next weld. It was no challenge. And i learn something from every weld i make.

    High frequency Tig. lap joint. test piece made a 94 what makes me most proud is that I finally was able to get my heat affected zone even all the way across my plate . and good color. It was challenging to get used to using a foot pedal and how to let up with your foot slowly to keep your puddle hot enough to add filler wire .

    The challenge was keeping the heat effected zone within tollerance without quenching the pipe during the process. To run the right amount of ampere so as to maintain maximum control of the weld puddle allowing the weld to keep within tollerance. Also finding time to weld during the pipe fitting course while maintaining an after school job.

    What I am most proud of is the way my weld looks like a perfect stack of Dimes. Having a wonderful instructor has helped me overcome the frustration from the rod sticking and not getting that straight line in the beginning. With patience and confidence keeping that hand steady I discovered that I’m going to go all the way with this and graduate from Tulsa welding school. Thank you.

    I am most proud of the skills I have learned overall in welding but especially how my Tig welds looks now. When I first strated Tig i wanted to drop out of school because I thought this just wasn’t for me with the challenge it presented. I kept my head down and continued welding and now here I am in phase ten about to bend out on two separate Tig projects, about to get a job might and Tig welding sheet metal. I am proud of myself for finishing one of the first major achievements of my young life. Excited for what is to come in the future.

    I’m proud that performed the weld consistently. My biggest challenge in this weld is to overlap your beads more consistently and your travel speed. How I overcome this weld is by not giving up but to correct the minor mistakes that you performed previously. To other students who may read this always remember, each weld you make, try make one that is better than the other and if you keep going you will make it.

    I’m proud of the work ethic I had when it came down to practicing for Phase 10. After spending a morning working with high frequency, practicing some 6010 SMAW afterwards was a challenge. I learned what to look for in a root pass and how to effectively tie into my tacks. I was surprised by how much working with stainless and Tig helped me when it came time to return to SMAW. I went into with a better understanding of what to look for in any type of root!

    This weld is from phase 3; MIG welding. I enjoy each project during this phase because it taught me to have patience and value for myself. To slow down and apply the knowledge gained. My instructor Mr. Paul Pearson; helped me gain more comfortability with welding and his words will stay with me. This weld and my instructor were and will always be my favorite part so far in this journey of mine.

    This was a personal project I had done for my stepson Riley who was turning eight with high frequency aluminum drip welding. This type of welding is so much fun and yet so challenging. I adore welding and all the aspects of it especially the muti tasking and technicality of it all, I cannot wait to start my career in welding and am so grateful to Tulsa Welding School and all it’s instructors for everything they teach and how far they push me. I am three weeks away from graduating, I have been in the deans list and have never gotten below a B on any of my projects it’s been a struggle because I have had to work a full time job and provide for my family while attending school and I am so excited to be done and working in this amazing field.

    What makes this weld stand out to me is the uniformity amongst the individual beads within the weld as a whole. The challenges overcome were that of travel speed, gun manipulation, as well as consideration for overlap. As progression from one weld to the next one is often reminded of the vast array of parameters that influence the outcome of a weld not only in quality but strength.

    The work I am most proud of is the work I did at he TWS Jacksonville hvac school. I was able to take a display case cooler apart and put it back together as a functional refrigeration cycle display. Fully rewired and added extra components such as schrader valves and a Sight flow indicator. The hardest part for me was probably the brazing all the copper lines due to some of them being in tight spots but it’s also the part I am most proud of since I got them all on the first go with no leaks.

    I’m most proud of this weld. To me, aluminum was the hardest to weld and not show the heat in the back. I learned how to control the placement of my heat with this particular weld. I kept wanting to put all of the heat on the bottom plate. I eventually figured out that you don’t burn through when you don’t put all of your heat on the bottom. Also, I found a technique that works to make it look correctly. Make an “M” when welding the two together. Great pattern for it. That was the hardest was not walking the cup too!
