    California Welding Schools

    Here is a list of some of the California welding training schools and career programs. You will notice that there are community colleges and technical schools both listed here. The type of welding program, its length and the certification options all vary from school to school. This list should be used as a starting point for your research to find a training program. Make sure you compare your choices and pick a school that will give you the tools you need to succeed. Some training is only good for amateur welders working at home while other training will prepare you for a career in welding.

    As there are a lot of welding schools and programs in the country, we may have missed a couple. Let us know if there is a program that you think should be added to the list!
