(Update as of 10/17/20) Greats news! We received notification from New York State that indoor arts and education categorized businesses are FINALLY able to re-open to the general public! Arc + Flame is evaluating the fine details and will act accordingly. Stay tuned for more announcements during the week! Earlier this month, Arc + Flame postponed all classes through 2020. We will evaluate the new mandates and provide details on re-opening soon. Our center is open for retail and walk-in customers on Monday 9am-5pm, Wednesday 10AM-6PM, and Friday 9am-5pm.

We are actively interviewing candidates interested in our Welding & Fabrication Program set to begin February 2021. This program is directly partnered through Monroe Community College. Contact us today for details on the admissions process!

Our Fall 2020 Welding & Fabrication Industry Certificate Program through Monroe Community College is currently able to run because of direct partnership with higher education [based on NYS Phase 4 COVID guidelines]. The same goes for our collegiate welding classes for engineering students through Rochester Institute of Technology and machining and HVAC students through Monroe Community College.
