Looking for Training Resources

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Resistance Welding : One Thread

I am looking for some places in the Western New York State area (Buffalo-Rochester-Syracuse) who offer training courses on resistance welding. There was one vendor in Rochester who used to offer this but has discontinued their courses. Does anyone know of any places?

I also have friends and family in the Pittsburgh, PA area, so traveling there for training would also be fairly convenient if anyone knows of a vendor or school in that area that offers courses.

Thank you.

I will e-mail you info on the resistance welding training at T.J.Snow Inc. We have a three day training class (three per year) at Chattanooga, TN and can do in-plant seminars at your facility.

I have been teaching automotive resistance welding to tradesmen at GM plants for the last ten years. I am in the Detroit, Michigan area, but travel is not a problem. My classes are usually 6 to 12, but if you have 3 or more then it is economical to have me come to your facility. You can check my credentials at www.updatetechnology.com

Hello Joe, I am with the Taylor-Winfield Corp., T-W has been manufacturing welding equipment for over a century. We are located 3 hrs from Buffalo NY in Brookfield Ohio. We offer a self training package "The Fundamentals of Resistance Welding" narrated & presented on CD format. This includes documentation and a brief Quiz after each section to assure understanding, it is currently in stock and ready for shipment. Many of our customers have written this "copywrited" RW training course into their ISO and Quality standards for new employees.

T-W also has process seminars scheduled at our Ohio and Livonia Michigan locations twice a year. Our last RW Seminar was in March 2002. Feel free to contact me and I will have our field sales engineer who covers NY schedule a visit to your facility to discuss our complete training capability.
