An AWS certified welding course is being organized for May, at the Northshore Technical Community College in Hammond, La. The class size is 20, they have 14 and need to fill the empty slots to start the class.
The course is 35 weeks, 3 nights a week, 6 hours a night (3pm-9pm). It is the NCCER curriculum and AWS certification tests at the end of the course (included).
$1500 is the total amount for the course, minus personal equipment (hood, jacket, gloves, etc.). It covers safety, weld prep (grinding), cutting (oxy and plasma), flux core, stick, MIG and TIG. Mild steel, stainless, aluminum and pipe.
I have personally been to the weld lab and it is fully functional and equipped. (I am on the list to take this course as well.)
This course is non-credit, so there isn't any student aid available. Payment plans can be arranged with the school.

(I have been waiting on this course since last August and they postponed it due to lack of enrollment...twice.)
