Experienced Instructors

Leading With Technology

Our Lincoln Plasma Arc Cutter is used to save you time so you can show up and weld rather than spending valuable time cutting your own materials. Plasma cutting is a process that cuts through electrically conductive materials by means of an accelerated jet of hot plasma. Typical materials cut with a plasma torch include steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and copper. Although, other conductive materials may be cut as well.

With our Lincoln Plasma Arc Cutter and over 80 Welding Booths you won't have a problem working at your own pace to become a certified welder.

We provide a unique course format that equips you with the experience and certification necessary to get a welding job making an average salary of $64,480 in Louisiana.
