I have been in the welding trade for over 49 years, as a craftsman welder and then training welders for over 35 years. For the past 25 years, I’ve been training fabrication, maintenance and manufacturing craftsmen all over the country as the owner/operator of my company, Welding Training Solutions, Inc. Training others to be successful in my craft is very satisfying. It’s frustrating to know the vast opportunities in the welding craft in so many different disciplines, and see so many fall short of their potential. I am committed to providing a positive, enjoyable training experience for those under my instruction, instilling in them a love for the craft of welding and a desire and commitment to producing quality welds. While I don’t have any letters behind my name and don’t hold any higher education degrees, what I do bring to the table is nearly a half century of experience.

“Welding is a practiced skill. But practice alone doesn’t make better welds — just more consistent welds. Only GOOD practice makes good welds! My goal in training is to help individuals understand the WHY of welding procedures and techniques so they will have a foundation of knowledge and skills to enable them to have repeated good practice. Once solid welding habits and skills are developed, they will have the capacity to become craftsman welders and self-inspectors through experience!” -Rick Cowman
