Welding schools can be great if you don’t mind paying $20,000 or more to attend. They cram the classrooms so full of students that you’re literally fighting over the limited amount of machines available. And, if you simply wanted to go practice outside of your classrooms’ scheduled time, you’re out of luck because another class of students will be fighting over the machines like hungry vultures on a carcass.
Even worse is the fact that you’re paying a ridiculous amount of money to attend, yet you don’t get to keep any of the welding machines. Does this seem like a good deal to you? Wouldn’t you rather spend a tiny fraction of that on your own MIG welder that will allow you to MIG weld for years to come?
