I did a quick lookup and <SHAMELESS EMPLOYER PLUG ALERT> Durhamtech has
a number of welding courses
these are credit classes so may be more than you want/ need to take to
learn how to stick 2 pieces of metal together. I did some further
checking and found out DT will be offering a non credit version of the
classes next summer. </SHAMELESS EMPLOYER PLUG ALERT>Let me know if you
would like more info.
