    Welding education/school in Northern Minnesota?

    Hey everyone, I'm looking for a short class (like month long or so) in the Northern Minnesota area or Duluth/Superior area.

    I've also been looking at multiple colleges in the area up here to go to next fall possibly. Do we have any members that have attended any of the schools in the Northern Minnesota or Northern Wisconsin area? If so I'd love to hear. I like in the Grand Rapids area.

    Thanks.

    -Pat

    I went to Bemidji State University for a degree in mathematics (approximately 15 years after graduating from high school). What are you intending to study?

    I'm interested in studying welding. Just curious if you don't mind me asking, what part of Northern Minnesota do you live in?

    Holy! Haha. A member that actually lives near me. I live in the Grand Rapids area. I have a cousin that lives in Bemidji that I visit quite a bit. I'd really like to find at least a month long class or something for welding that I could take since I'm laid off for the winter.

    Isn't the Itasca Community College (ICC) in your town? I would think as an engineering college they would have a class?

    If not, I do teach basic welding sometimes at my home shop. Equivalent to high school shop welding class. It goes fast since you weld 8hrs a day instead of 1 hour like at school.

    My girlfriend is going to ICC. I've checked it out. They don't have anything I'm interested in. I would love to be able to get the opportunity to learn from you. Can you PM me more information on it please? Thank you very much in advance.

    Thank you. I got it yesterday, I just haven't had time to do much of anything the last two days. I'll try to e mail you tonight. Thanks again.
