Arc + Flame is still not cleared to run any classes for the general public, including open torch flameworking. As a result, we have postponed all classes through Sept. 30th, 2020. This is based entirely on New York State’s mandates pertaining to COVID. Our center is open for retail and walk-in customers from 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. Our Fall 2020 Welding & Fabrication Industry Certificate Program through Monroe Community College is currently able to run because of direct partnership with higher education. 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. Please read our re-open plan for more details. We appreciate your understanding.
