About WTEC

The Welding Technology Education Center (WTEC) was born from industry need to fulfill industry need. WTEC is an American Welding Society Educational Institution member located at Fab Masters Company, Inc. in Marcellus, Michigan. Due to experiencing firsthand the shortage of skilled welders, Fab Masters President & CEO Ron Troxell decided to start his own welding training program. As a result, WTEC courses are designed with employers’ requirements in mind. Instructors then teach the theory and facilitate the hands-on lab practice needed for students to become capable of producing high quality welds. Consequently, WTEC is confident our graduates gain the welding skills needed to enter production or industry-level positions.

WTEC partners with Michigan Works to provide training to unemployed and displaced workers.
