AWS welding course in SE La.

Postby RocketSurgeon » Fri Mar 20, 2015 3:13 pm

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.

Contact Amy Valentine at the school: 985-549-3165

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

That is a really good price for a course with that much seat time. It would fill in a heartbeat around here. Here's to hoping you get a chance to attend.

I'll share it a few places on line, and even at work, though only two of us live anywhere near Hammond, and we're both ASME, and work doesn't require AWS (yet...)

May 18th is the start date. They were able to fill the empty seats in order to start the class.

Again, 35 weeks, 3 nights per week and 5 hours per night (instead of 6). 4pm to 9pm. There may be slots available before they have the maximum enrollment.

Sweet! They met the minimum, so the course is on, but there are still seats available?

Yes. They have enough for the class and there are a few seats left (filler I guess, just in case some drop it). They have 16 solid students and 4 "iffy's". Though the max is ~25. If someone is still interested, they need to contact the school, soon.

I got a phone call from one of the school administrators yesterday. She said there are a few seats left and that the course is set to start for May 18th.

Any one still interested, and living in the area of Hammond, La., should call Amy Valentine at Northshore Tech CC: 985-549-3165.

This is an AWS course. Night classes from 4-9pm. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. $1500 for the entire course, not including personal equipment. They have payment plans available since this is a non-credit course.

Enrollment is now open for the AWS course.

Here is the link:

Search "AWS" and click on the 5/18/15 start date. $100 gets a seat, however the rest must be paid by the 20th. Books are included.
