PIT Instruction & Training, LLC offers welding courses and American Welding Society (AWS) welder testing via its PIT Weld U program.  The state licensed courses are designed for the individual who wishes to achieve a career within the welding industry, where skilled welders and metal workers are in high-demand.


PIT Weld U 100 - Focuses on basic metal cutting and fabrication techniques, as well as MIG and TIG welding disciplines in mild steel and aluminum applications on flat bar and tubing.  The motorsports/automotive focused hands-on course is designed both for the beginner with little knowledge of the trade as well as those with prior experience looking to refine their skills.  Additionally, students will learn about welding safety, get introduced to welding symbols and drawings and become well versed in proper equipment setup and operation.  Held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 4:30pm – 10:00pm, the sixteen (16) week course also prepares students for AWS certification under D1.3 Structural Sheet Steel welding code.  Each class is limited to a maximum of twelve (12) students.


PIT Weld U 200 - Is geared for the individual looking to learn the ins-and-outs of the SMAW (stick) welding discipline, advanced torch cutting methods and blueprint reading.  SMAW is primarily used in structural and heavy equipment applications. As such the course is designed to help students obtain jobs in the machinery, construction and pipeline fields.  While those with little prior experience may take the course, it is highly recommended that they take PWU 100 prior to, or at least concurrently with, the course to ensure they’re able to get the most out of the program – specifically during the torch cutting and blueprint reading portions of the program.  Like PWU-100, students will also learn about welding safety and proper equipment setup and operation during their time in class.  PWU 200 is sixteen (16) weeks in length and takes place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:00pm – 10:00pm.  Additionally, the course prepares students for AWS certification under D1.1 Structural Steel welding code.  Each class is limited to a maximum of twelve (12) students.
