We offer customized training for OSHA 10 including training at your location. Training cost is $58 / person. This safety course provides a broad look at workplace (general industry or healthcare) safety topics.  It helps workers identify, avoid, & correct on-the-job hazards. Additionally, workers learn their legal rights and how to protect them.  OSHA 10 workplace training helps companies protect workers and avoid costly legal proceedings.


Weld testing is offered on the third Saturday of every month at the Southwest Campus. Check-in is at 7:30am and testing runs from 8:00am to 1:00pm. Students interested in testing must sign-up at least a week prior to the test date. Testers are responsible for all personal protective equipment (PPE).

Testing is done by certified welding instructors (CWI). Instructors will provide all inspections and award certifications.
