AWS Certification Training
Phaze Welding Technology Center provides a one of a kind training program at MAxT that prepares students to become AWS Certified welders. AWS provides the only certification that allows them to work as a welder anywhere in North America, opening up opportunities for higher wages and career advancement.
Led by instructor Dan Guillou, the certificate program is 130 hours, taken at the pace of the student, where they learn how to do basic MIG, flux core and stick welds. Very little time is spent on a welding table - rather, the class is spent learning how to weld in a wide variety of conditions, inside and out. The students get practical projects to work on - from repair work to structural welding.
At the end of the course, students take the AWS certification test, which will qualify them for jobs in the building, transportation and sheet metal industries among others. Better yet, they will be able to work with the confidence they are fully prepared for any situation.
Earning Hours - The class is designed to be flexible - Students may earn hours toward the full 130 they need to complete their training on Saturdays from 9am-3pm. Students may go at their own pace - it is not required to come for the full time or every Saturday.
Pricing - Phaze Welding Technology Center offers their classes at an extremely competitive price compared to other options for welding training, including from local community college two year programs. The opportunity is even better for members of MAxT Makerspace - which offers a $3000 discount plus the opportunity to use the space's equipment outside of training.
Non-members: $8000/130 hours
Members: $5000/130 hours
