New England School of Metal Work

7 Albiston Way, Auburn, ME 04210

Phone:(207) 777-6211

This not what I would really consider a welding school but it is worth a mention. There are very few people or organizations that can still teach blacksmithing but New England School of Metal Work can. If you ever have the chance to take some classes here I would for sure!

Adult Education Center

Phone:(603) 524-5712

You can take a welding class here but the program is geared toward the home shop welder rather than a career minded welder.

Other Options For Welder Training In New Hampshire: Welding Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship with either the iron workers or the boilermakers Union can be an excellent way to earn and learn at the same time. Apprenticeships can last 4 to 5 years and paying anywhere from about $15-$25 an hour or more depending on how long you been an apprentice.

Well neither Union offers welding specific apprenticeships they both heavily utilize welding. Without a doubt you will become a certified welder but you also learn additional skills such as; rigging, blueprint reading, pipefitting, crane signals and other unique skills that you will not learn anywhere else.

After you complete the apprenticeship you will become what is called a journeyman. Journeyman earn anywhere from about $27 an hour to $30 per hour and sometimes more depending on the geographical location that you work. An apprenticeship is a great option for people that do not want to go to welding school or cannot afford it.
