Allied Welding Schools is geared toward “at-risk” youth.
Designed to help reduce crime, we offer an alternative to a
lifestyle of gangs, drugs or violence by training them to
be employable. Through our course, they can become the working
class, the backbone of our society, and earn a livable wage.
We also offer this program to repeat offenders or other adults
who need a “leg-up.” Again, by teaching a skill, we help people
return to society as wage earners with a high standard work
What does the course
The course includes 60 hours of in-class theory, through
books and videos, as well as 400 hours of hands-on training.
Skills and material covered include:
• Shielded metal
• Gas metal arc welding
• Acetylene welding
(gas or oxy-fuel welding)
• Torch cutting
• Plasma arc cutting
• Equipment safety and maintenance
• OSHA safety standards
Where does training
All theory and hands-on training take place at
our state of art facility. A classroom is provided for
theory learning, and a hands-on shop to perform and practice
in, which is stocked with high quality Lincoln Welders and
Miller Welding Equipment.
the benefits of this particular program?
Allied Welding Schools not only trains and prepares individuals to become certified
welders, but also emphasizes work ethic and personal character.
We strive to make our students employable and the best of employees.
We assist students in obtaining a GED, TWIC card, and/or BAT (Bay
Area Training) card, in order to fulfill the requirements for state
licensure for employment. We also offer drug and alcohol counseling
to those who might need it.
What can students look forward to after
completion of the program?
Students who finish this course will
be equipped with the information and training necessary for the
state certification exam. They will
then be tax-paying, productive members of society.
What does the program cost?
The cost for the course includes tuition, books, materials, and
access to a great professional team eager to help each student
succeed. The total cost per student is $6,000. Although
our goal is to offer this program for free, because of the
cost it takes to run it, we need outside contributions to make
this dream a reality. A tax-deductible
donation will help to give “at-risk” youth a chance for
a better future.
