This is a review for anyone wanting to enroll at Tulsa Welding School.. How many of you have actually went to a vocational or technical school and have had the most awesome, intelligent, encouraging educators? Well i can say that this was my first time ever meeting instructors that took their time and dedication into making sure that i learned properly and correctly. Mr Jamie Pearson and Mr. Brian Vanzant have been the most articulate and in depth instructors ever. I have learned so much from them, things that they did not have to teach us. I am now inspired to do more than just weld. I have decided to become an inspector as well, thanks to Mr. Pearson and his metallurgical intelligence. I was fascinated by the information that he passed down to me. They wanted to make sure we learned the skill of welding plus so much more. And gave my classmates and I so many tips on how to weld and fix mistakes, they also made sure that we were prepared to take our weld tests for our future jobs. The things I am saying now about these two educators ( I say educators because to me that word means so much more than instructor) do not do them any justice. They deserve a golden medal for everything they have taught us since phase 6 through 10. I can say that before choosing this school, I had looked into other welding schools but, I am very happy that I came here because as difficult as this course may be, I don't think I would have made it anywhere else and that is with the help of all the instructors plus staff. Now that I will be graduating from the professional welder course, I will be going into the Welder Inspector course. Just know that when you come into this school, it's not going to be easy. I'ts going to take lots of hard work and dedication. The summers will be hot and the winters will be cold. So be prepared to give it your all. This is coming from a single mother of two who left the comfort of our own home to become a better person and to be able to provide for my children in ways i couldn't before. Thank you for this opportunity Tulsa Welding School.

I took welding in high school for 3 quarters, automotive for 5 quarters and electronics for 1 quarter. When I graduated, I went to South GA Tech & Vocational School in Americus GA for a quarter, then went back to Jesup. Got a job at American Welding & Tank for 12-1/2 months, than at the Rayonier Pulp Mill for 4-1/2 years and decided I wanted to become a certified welder. Was working in the woodyard at Rayonier, as I put in for a 6 month leave of absence, as I was in the United Paperworkers International Union and the contract said I could do this, but the union president back then was a welder. The supervisors in the woodyard told me that they wouldn't approve me taking that leave of absence, but they would let me go to welding school in in Brunswick at night and work during the day at Rayonier, then the union president at that time took it to the Rayonier Resident Manager to state my intentions of wanting the 6 months to attend Tulsa Welding School in Oklahoma, but he said that he would give me a month, take it or leave it, and being the union president and the welder that he was, told the Resident Manager, "I'll let him know", as he didn't fight for me even though I was a union member of Local 787 who paid my dues. So I left for Tulsa, and after a month there at school, got a registered letter from Rayonier telling me to sign that letter and to return it, as I had been terminated from Rayonier. My instructors were Dick Tyson and Jerry Griggs, and Charlie Morris would come around to check on me every now and then, as all of them were top notch first class certified journeyman welders. Mr. Noel Adams was the President of the school back then, and Tom Hollands taught pipe fitting, and would share stories of his days as a radiologist on pipelines, as well as would teach us how to get past a secretary when nothing else would work, when applying for a job, and he would help us find jobs when we would get close to graduation, as well as when a job would be over and we didn't have any prospects for another job. Dick taught me how to weld aluminum cans together, and Jerry taught me how to use a TIG torch to put a root and hot pass in carbon steel pipe as well as stainless steel pipe. I later, on some jobs, learned how to walk the cup and weld on sanitary food grade 16 gauge stainless steel tubing using an argon purge, then one of my employers taught me how to use nerf balls with a piece of copper tubing run through them for different inside diameters, which were attached to the argon purge hoses, so they could quickly be inserted into the tubing ends and not need to tape the ends, which saved lots of time. I also have some thick pieces of copper bus bar for welding aluminum wire tray and stainless steel bar, so excessive penetration wouldn't cause the back side to 'sugar' and make the weld look bad. But back in the early 80's, this was a top notch school, as we had to work and to push ourselves if we wanted to make it and to learn whet we needed to know. I remember when the Jacksonville FL campus first was about to start, as Jerry Griggs contacted me to ask if I would like a teaching position, as he had told me that I was the best stainless steel TIG welder he had ever seen for making fusion welding on food grade 16 gauge sanitary stainless steel fittings and tubing without having to use any filler rod. And when welding on schedule 5 and 10 pipe, I could feather edge the pipe, butt them up and fuse the first pass, then start to fill the hot pass and come on out with the other passes and cap it, as he wanted me to only teach how to weld stainless steel pipe and thin wall stainless steel tubing, like is used in food processing plants and breweries. But from where I live to the school was about 2 to 2-1/2 hours one way, and I knew I didn't want to live in Jacksonville, I turned him down, but thanked him just the same. I graduated from the Combination Welding Course on July 20, 1983 as a Certified Pipe Welder, and my first job was at the Adolph Coors Brewery in Golden Colorado. Had to pass 4 tests.

I have a son that goes here he is in the 5th phase. I talk to him every other day and he is nothing but pleased with the school and the teachers. He tells me all the time about how the teachers are so helpful when he runs up against a problem. When I talked to the administration over the phone they told me that he will get out of the program what he puts into the program. If you're serious about starting a welding career I would seriously consider the school.

It is impossible to get a hold of any admin person to discuss anything once they have enroll. Prior to enrolling you can always get a hold of someone. Now that my soon is enroll at this school and paid all his tuition, it is impossible to talk to an individual. I've been trying to contact anyone in the finance (Business) department for the last 3 months. I've left numerous message and not one call back. My suggestion to anyone thinking about a trade school is to avoid Tulsa Welding
