The Earlbeck difference
Why come to the Earlbeck Training Center?
Welding is what we do here at Earlbeck- from gases and equipment, to weld certification.
The Earlbeck Technical Center was established 30 years ago and has been educating and certifying welders ever since; we have helped over 3,000 students enter the workforce! Our goal is to train and certify individuals to help decrease the estimated shortage of over 400,000 welders by 2024, according to the American Welding Society (AWS), while improving and enriching lives through occupational training. We can’t do that without your motivation and skill to add into the workforce. We provide world-class programs and services, for individuals to reach their fullest potential.
We care about our community.
We trained the RG Steel workers (formerly Bethlehem Steel), after the official shut down in 2012. Earlbeck stepped up and was able to provide these workers with additional or new skills to re-enter to work force, without having to start from the beginning in order to make a livable wage.
Our Technical Center provides students with AWS Certified Welding Instructors (CWI), Certified Welding Educators (CWE), state of the art supplies and equipment, which is updated every 18 months to ensure you are learning on the best equipment available; and an overall fun environment! Our instructors are dedicated to your success and will coach you every step of the way, even after you have successfully completed our program.
What will you learn?
Students will learn skills needed to enter the welding industry; or if you are already a welder, you can come to our technical center for advanced training to move to the next level in your career.

Why Choose the Earlbeck Technical Center?
I turned to Earlbeck Corporation for not only my welding consumables but, more importantly, weld certifications and procedures. I see no other welding supplier in the region that has a greater knowledge of the complex welding discipline than Earlbeck. Having the resources of Earlbeck just an email away has always given me the business confidence to accept what the industry sends my way.
