Register for an In-Shop Welding Course

I-CAR®’s Welding Training & Certification courses are industry-recognized because of the unique learning, skills practice and hands-on test technicians experience. Although the actual training is completed in one day, the average time to complete the entire Welding Training & Certification process is typically two to six weeks.

Factors such as shop availability and readiness to hold the event, I-CAR Instructor availability, and the outcome of the shop Welding Capability & Readiness Assessment all contribute to upfront preparation time before training day. Shop preparation in the weeks leading up to the course is critical to successful certification on training day!

Note: Gold Class Shops that have welding as a Gold Class requirement need to complete the welding registration process no later than six weeks prior to their Gold Class expiration date.
