Beal College's Welding Technology Department is accredited from the American Welding Society (AWS). We are AWS's newest accredited testing facility.
As a result, individuals and companies can now obtain welder certification locally from an approved facility at an affordable price. Any welder who wishes to obtain a nationally recognized AWS certification may do so at the Beal College Welding Test Center in Bangor, Maine.
"The driving force behind seeking this accreditation was to see every graduate of our welding program finish with an AWS certification," said Corey Leighton, Director of Operations at Beal College.
Both Beal College's Welding Technology Program Director, Jesse Crosby, and Welding Instructor, Michael Collins, played pivotal roles in Beal's ability to earn AWS accreditation through hard work and dedication to the welding industry and local community.
"We are always looking for things to help make our student more employable, this does just that," said Jesse.
