[Update April 2021] Thank you for your patience! We strive to have additional announcements on welding classes for the Summer/Fall of 2021… We are actively working to reschedule and take care of hundreds of students who had classes cancelled/postponed over this past year (*Also includes private/custom welding classes). This is a direct result of the Covid pandemic and New York State mandated shutdowns. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
