Mid is the place to be for welding!
I was initially pursuing an automotive degree at Delta College. The degree requirements kept changing, so after three years I was only halfway done. A friend of mine that was attending Mid, introduced me to welding and I fell in love with the field. I transferred to Mid, and have been taking welding courses at the Harrison Campus. The campus is great, the technology top-notch, and the instructors are engaging, knowledgeable, and helpful.
These are the best courses that I’ve ever taken! I recommend Mid and the welding program to anyone that is interested in welding, Mid is the place to be.
