For more than three decades, New Dawn College has been offering high-quality career-oriented training. Today New Dawn College offers two Diploma Programs: Basic Welding, and High Pressure Pipe Welding.

New Dawn has been a truly amazing experience for me and I couldn’t be happier that I chose to take the Welding program there. The teachers are all so helpful and it is a really friendly and easy going environment. I wish more women would consider welding as a career and taking this program. You feel quite proud of your accomplishments and have something to show for all of your hard work.

New Dawn College has taught me everything I needed to know about welding and how to get started in the industry. I had no previous experience and with the help of the instructors, I was able to not only learn how to weld, but to consistently duplicate results. In short, it was an excellent experience with great staff that to this day are more than happy to help with advice or time.
