2 Programs

Tulsa Welding School was founded in 1949 by two welders who recognized a strong demand for skilled tradesman in their industry. Over 60 years later, TWS has evolved into an educational institution that prepares students for various skilled trade careers with a multitude of specialties and applications. We train our graduates for the skills, knowledge, and the workplace attitudes that are essential when entering the professional world. Graduates who put forth the dedication, commitment to excel, and workplace experience in their welding, pipefitting, shipfitting, HVAC/R or electrical welding education, have the potential to obtain a lasting and rewarding welding career.

The mission of Tulsa Welding School is to assist learners in the development of the skills and knowledge necessary for employment and professional growth

Available Programs

  • Welding Specialist
    Building Systems, Construction, and Manufacturing

    The Welding Specialist program, available at the Houston Campus only, prepares a graduate for entry level positions in structural, pipe and pipeline, and thin alloy welding. Key welding processes include SMAW (stick), GMAW/FCAW (MIG/Fluxcore), and GTAW (TIG) welding procedures. Students learn welding safety, torch cutting processes, proper arc welding equipment setup, important welding control techniques, fundamental welding processes, and basic welding metallurgy. This intense program is primarily lab based and focuses on developing critical welding skills.

    Upon successful completion of this program, the graduate will receive a diploma and should possess the skills and knowledge to test for welder certification through the American Welding Society (AWS). As potential employees, students should be able to successfully perform essential tasks expected from a certified welder, with minimal supervision. With field experience, it is expected that students’ welding production rates will increase to meet industry standards.

  • Refrigeration Technologies
    Building Systems, Construction, and Manufacturing


    The Refrigeration Technologies (RT) program is available at the Houston, Jacksonville, and Tulsa campuses and contains seven (7) courses. The objective of the RT program is to train and prepare students for entry as service and maintenance technicians in jobs that utilize technologies employed in the fields of air conditioning (both heating and cooling), and refrigeration. Students completing this program should have an understanding of mechanical and electrical principles and will have practical exposure to diagnosing, servicing and repairing common types of problems in related equipment. Upon successful completion of this program, students will receive a Diploma.
