“This school has been an amazing experience. I went into it thinking I was just going to be doing welding, graduate, and then get a job. IAI is so much more than that and the staff really make you feel like family. They always want what’s best for you, not just as a welder but as a person. Best choice you can make is to join the IAI family.” -James Peterson, Cohort 5 Alumni


” I would like to thank the Industrial Arts Institute faculty and staff for the great educational experience they provided me during Cohort 5s Comprehensive Industrial Welding program. Not only did I achieve my CIW100 weld certification, I also established many new friendships. Thank you again for the mentoring and supportive role IAI played during my training.”- Brent Dzuida, Cohort 5 Alumni
