Welding Training

In 2007, we established our own in-house, state-of-the-art welding training center to train both current and new employees in the latest welding technologies. To meet a growing demand for welders, employees have a unique opportunity to raise skill and compensation levels with a comprehensive focus on welding techniques such as gas metal arc, gas tungsten arc, flux cored arc, shielded metal arc, and shielded metal arc welding on pipe, using E6010 5P and E7018 electrodes.

The on-campus facility houses a classroom, a library and a lab with eight welding and two grinding booths.  Inside, students learn numerous weld testing methods, such as guided bend, Charpy V-Notch impact, macro-etch, plus radiographic and ultra sonic tests. Upon completion of the intensive program, participants have the opportunity to earn certifications from the American Society of Mechanical Engineering and the American Welding Society.

“Through a commitment to in-house training, our goal is raising the bar in weld capabilities by mastering new technologies. The result is meeting a need for well-trained and certified welders as expansion occurs; and providing the highest quality products via a skilled workforce,” says Dave Dybdal, a welding instructor for Superior Industries, and a member of the American Welding Society (AWS).

Thirty percent of the training is in the classroom, while 70% is in the welding lab. Currently 90% of our welders have completed the program, with the goal of achieving 100% of the welding workforce. To date, more than 1,000 tests have been passed!
