The CSI Workforce Development and Training Department will be offering “Welding - Level 1: Introduction - Stick/MIG” on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, January 28 - February 26, from 6 – 9 p.m. The class will meet at the Desert Building Welding Lab on the main CSI campus in Twin Falls. The cost of this training is $475 per person.

With welders retiring at twice the pace of new welders coming into the field, it is anticipated that in the years to come there will be a need for 310,000 replacement and new positions. Grow your current skillset through this 30-hour training that focuses on Stick (SMAW) and MIG/wire feed (GMAW) welding. 

This course is designed as an introductory course to GMAW, FCAW, and GTAW. Students will learn welding theory while getting applied training of welds in various positions on various materials such as carbon steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. Students will focus on production welding with the end goal of workplace readiness.

Instructor Brand Foust started welding in California and moved to Utah in order to pursue his passion for welding. There he worked as a professional welder-- using his skills in order to build anything from signs, fracking machines, and ski lifts. Later he passed his Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) exam at the young age of 23. He has worked as a CWI since, and is now an instructor, here, at "The College of Southern Idaho" (CSI).'
