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.

Great Course!

HTP’s Intro to TIG was a superb jammed packed 4 hour dive into elementary TIG welding and basic set up and use of the HTP 221 Invertig machine. Good course for someone with no TIG experience or someone who is thinking about purchasing a TIG machine, particularly the HTP 221. A newby won’t depart a TIG welder but will be introduced to the basics of TIG, know how to set up the 221, “dial” in very basic parameters, establish an arc, create and move a puddle. Lots of hands on/under the hood time. Recommend for a newby wanting to check out the 221. BTW I own an HTP 221 Invertig - it’s an exceptional machine & far and away the best value for the $ on the market at this time - no one is even close!

Intro To Tig Class

Very good experience for a brief class. Jerry was great, a wealth of knowledge and willing to answer all questions. The facility and equipment was first rate. Would recommend to anyone looking to upgrade their skills. Looking forward to future classes there if time allows. And also Nicole was a big help as well.

Introduction to TIG Welding

Had fun and learned lots! Jerry Westhouse does an excellent job, giving a lot of information in a short period of time. Highly recommend this class for anyone just starting to learn TIG welding. Great price considering the time and cost of a community college. Jerry gives a great overview and shows solutions to help you solve your own problems when learning at home. His helper Nichol was friendly and knowledgeable and able to help you when Jerry was with other students. All the staff I met at USA WELD were great! I will continue to be a loyal customer. Darrin.
