Notice: Our welding school schedule is currently suspended due to the facility being under construction. If you are in need of welder training, please give us a call or email and we will work with you to provide the training you need.

Our training programs are designed for beginners to experienced welders. Keen uses only the most knowledgeable instructors and incorporates the latest practices, information and equipment to ensure you are learning the most up to date welding techniques available.

Class size is limited to five students to guarantee each student is getting the instruction they need. All classes are for 2 days, beginning at 8 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. at our Training Facility.

Keen provides lunch and all the materials you need to make this class work to your advantage.
