What Real Students Say

" EITC's (CEI) welding program is relatively inexpensive and will help you acquire the skills to get out into the workforce. I did not know it would help me progress as far as I have. Now that I am almost finished I have two jobs already lined up because of the program's instructor and the hands-on experience it provides. "

Everett Coon

" A great benefit to the program is the willingness of the instructors to help students learn on an individual level."
