Comments from our last welding class:

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the TIG welding class last Thursday at your facility. Jerry did an excellent job answering general knowledge questions as well as demonstrating different techniques. I have a better understanding now of what to look for when problems arise or when setting up for a job.

Hi Jerry: I wanted to thank you for the fine training you provided yesterday. It was very helpful for me, especially when you watched me weld and told me things like: "more heat", "less heat", "closer", "farther away", "faster", "slower", etc. That's the kind of feedback you don't get from books or "YouTube". I hope I can remember everything the next time I get the TIG welder out. Thanks, again. Good Job.
