Phaze Welding Technology Center
Welding offers more job opportunities and the likelihood for career advancement than just about any other industry. The median age for welders is mid-fifties and many will be retiring in the next ten years. Businesses will need a new generation of welders to fill the void.
Phaze Welding Technology Center is an accredited welding education center that works in collaboration with Region 14 Applied Technology Center at Conval High School. Phaze teaches advanced welding techniques and trains students to administer advanced cutting and welding applications currently in demand within the manufacturing and construction industry.
