Other Options: Welding Training In Connecticut – Welding Apprenticeships

Welding school may not be an option for you for a number of reasons. If money is a concern you will most likely be able to get a student loan, pell grant or other financial aid assistance to get into a Connecticut welding school. If money is not the problem then I have a few other places you can get welding training in Connecticut for free.

An apprenticeship with the boilermakers or iron workers Union is a great way to get hands-on and classroom training while being paid. You’ll learn a variety of great skills including welding, rigging, pipefitting and safety related knowledge.

Apprenticeships generally last about 4 to 5 years and you will receive a pay raise after completing each year of the apprenticeship.
