The experienced staff at KWI will help you to achieve a successful career in welding; our instructional staff will provide you with the training and skills necessary to become, not only successful but a career-oriented welder.

Becoming a successful welder means more than just running a bead. Beyond classroom study, and extensive hands-on training, KWI supports a lifetime job placement assistance program, for the lifetime of KWI.
