I came into Earlbeck not knowing anything about welding, it's components, etc. I started out with Fundamentals of Welding and I was always excited for what was in store for each day's new lesson. They taught me the basics and immediately I was hooked and I knew that welding/fabrication was my go to career after switching my career path. My instructors were great mentors and they always were willing to help whenever I needed it. I was amazed and more so proud of myself to see how far I've come since a year and a half I received my certifications in TIG and MIG. I am now a full time welder/fabricator and can't thank Earlbeck enough for their support and teaching skills because it sure did pay off! Thank you guys! I will be back soon to become certified in stick welding pipe in the advanced course! You guys rock!
