Advanced Welding School | Welding School in Walker Louisiana

We create opportunity by removing financial stress.

LAUNCH YOUR WELDING CAREER WITH THE HELP OF AN ISA LOAN. ​

Advanced Welding School is honored to partner with LEIF to offer $25 million in Income Shared Agreement (ISA) for student funding to help YOU advance your future. ISA's are designed to increase access to quality education, at Advanced Welding School, we value your education but are unique in the fact that we work with you for job placement. We partner with multiple companies to secure job opportunities for our graduates.
 Our ISA is a way to study now and pay your tuition after graduation.
 
Deciding to pursue further education is exciting, but it can also be a stressful experience. You may feel burdened by the prospect of taking on excessive student debt or unsure how to manage jobs while studying. Leif removes these barriers to education and creates the opportunity for you to succeed in the pursuit of your education. Through an Income Share Agreement (ISA), you do not pay tuition until you land a well-paying job. Unlike traditional student loans, ISAs align the incentives of your school with your success. The biggest advantage of financing your education with an ISA is that the payments adjust to what you can afford based on your income. If you fall on hard times and lose your job, you pay nothing; no more fear of default.
