Why CDA Welding

CDA Technical Institute Maritime Welding Program

A welding career demands total commitment, long hours, a great attitude and superior work ethic. The most important factors in choosing a welding school are the quality of education, certifications offered and the preparation for a successful welding career. These are the reasons CDA’s Maritime Welding Program excels.

By choosing CDA’s Maritime Welding Program, you are committing yourself to the most rigorous and comprehensive training program available. Our welding program goes above and beyond the standard welding training with additional training in fitting, thermal cutting, confined spaces, hazardous materials handling, first aid, rigging, weld inspection and offshore safety and survival to simulate the rigors of a real maritime welder. These skills are in high demand by leading companies throughout the welding industry.

Welding Outside of the Booth

CDA Trains Welders Outside the Booth!

Unlike most traditional welding schools that mass-produce students trained only in booths using new metals, CDA’s Maritime Welding Program trains our students in the real-world marine environment. Our students obtain practical experience in maintenance and repair of maritime equipment and are challenged by various conditions of metals, all welding positions, and environmental hazards.

If you’re up to the challenge that a welding career offers, then train with the only welding school that is taught in an industrial riverfront environment!

As part of the decision process, you should also evaluate the total cost of training. Although funding is always a consideration, it is only part of the formula, which includes tuition, books, equipment and the length of the program.
