Open Welding: We have open welding M-F from 7:30am-4:30pm. Open welding on Tuesday nights has been CANCELLED due to not enough membership participation. We hope to resume in September.

UA Weld Test: We will be holding UA Weld tests as needed at scheduled times at the Training Center until further notice. Late arrivals will not be allowed to test. Please note that it takes approximately 3 weeks to get X-ray results back from LU 597, so plan accordingly. Also note that PE Fusion certifications can be done on any UA Weld test date. The PE 1 cert is for ½” to 2” and the PE 2 cert is for 4” to 8”. Please let us know in advance if you would like to test for either of these certifications. Contact Dave Kealey at or call 309-788-4159 ext. (4).
