The previous person meant to say TULSA* welding school, however this is a loaded question, i am familiar with tulsa welding school because i grew up right by Tulsa Oklahoma. That is where it started. The only difference is that the Jacksonville school has a dive program for underwater welding. Please specify what your end goal as a welder is and what type of welding you want to do. As a veteran, my school was paid for by the VA system. I chose a smaller cheaper school though. Please specify more in the question and i would love to give a little more insight.
