    Hobart Institute of Welding Technology

    I am going to go to this school https://www.welding.org/wp-content/u....5.18.docx.pdf after I finish the classes at United Bicycle Institute. I am doing the Structural Welding Program which is 23 weeks (page 7 in the link). Anybody can go here and take whatever class interests them. I will go there on all of my vacations for five years.

    I did a lot of research as to which welding schools are the best. Hobart Institute of Welding Technology (in Troy, OH) and Tulsa Welding School seemed to be the top two. Georgia Trade School seemed to come in third place.

    United Bicycle Institute teaches nothing about welding other than brazing and TIG on 4130 Chromoly and TIG on Titanium. My battery boxes are aluminum. I can foresee a use for SS parts somewhere on the bike as well as some application calling for MIG.

    For those interested in a formal education in both manual and CNC machining, this 384 hour program http://www.lonestar.edu/Machining-Master.htm is the only vocational school that I found whose program includes instruction in manual machining and manual tooling. You can't find many places teaching the old ways!

    A book entitled The Machinist's Bedside Reader is also a good source for manual operation of machine shop tools.

    I am more interested in the manual operation of a mill and lathe due to my financial limitations. A small or medium Grizzly machine is affordable, but I would never be able to afford a CNC machine.
