We train welders
It’s how we make certain the modern workforce has enough talented people.
We offer welder training programs at various Valmont facilities, from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Valley, Nebraska to Brenham, Texas. In this program, high school and trade school students learn the production environment, procedures and processes at Valmont before gaining a position on the shop floor. Paid training lasts two to three weeks, with a combination of classroom and hands-on training in our weld labs or production environment. Program eligibility and details vary by site. Some facilities require little to no prior experience to participate. As a part of welder training, participants receive American Welding Society (AWS) certified testing and certifications.
