Admissions Information
Requirements Admission Requirements • Be at least 17 years old at the time of a student’s program start date and be at least 18 years old by the time of the student’s program completion date. • Be a high school graduate or have earned a GED certificate. Submission of a copy of a student’s high school transcript, high school diploma, or GED certificate is required to complete a student’s enrollment file and must be submitted before the program start date. • Be able to read, write and understand English. • Welding is a physically demanding career, and AEWA runs its training programs as a job site which means your training is physically demanding. AEWA recommends that all new students have seen their primary care physician for a physical and have had a recent eye exam. Please note that welding in contact lenses is prohibited. If you need corrective lenses, you must wear glasses. Please note that while physical handicaps do not preclude a student from admission to the school, individuals with physical handicaps should consult with their physician and AEWA to determine if the training requirements can be accomplished.
