Get Ready for Life After Service
Your time in the military might almost be over, but your country still needs you. The DoD SkillBridge program provides active military members with a pathway to a fulfilling career that provides security and serves the community.
Train at an Approved DoD SkillBridge School
If you are within 180 days of release from active duty, you can train to become a welder at Tulsa Welding School (TWS) in just 18 weeks. TWS has been training students to work as welders since 1949. Welding programs at TWS are usually 7 months, but when you enroll through the DoD SkillBridge program, you’ll learn all the fundamentals of welding in a shorter time frame and can be ready for your career sooner.
Learn From Instructors Who Understand Military Service Members
You’ll train with the help of instructors who understand the challenges of adjusting to civilian life after military life. TWS has trained many Veterans to become lifelong welders. In fact, some of our instructors are Veterans as well. You’re in good hands.
As an added benefit, you will have a single instructor assigned throughout your training through the DOD SkillBridge approved 18-week Professional Welder program. You will receive focused training from an experienced welder at TWS.
GI Bill® and Special Military Tuition Pricing Is Available
You can apply the GI Bill® toward your training. Active military service members are also entitled to military tuition pricing to train at a more affordable price.
