Hobart Institute Opens Learning Facility

February 1, 2017

The Hobart Institute of Welding Technology (HIWT) opened the Next Generation Welder Learning Facility on its Troy, OH, campus. The new 16,000-plus-sq.-ft. building began hosting classes in late-October 2016 at the 13-acre campus that has trained more than 100,000 welders.

The facility features three technically advanced classrooms that seat as many as 120 students, and contains high-tech audio-visual training aids. The facility also houses a dedicated nondestructive laboratory and classroom for hands-on liquid-penetrant and magnetic-particle inspection and training. Additionally, the facility boasts a large welder performance-qualification laboratory for destructive testing. The new facility will enhance the student learning experience for welder skill and technical training, as well as qualification testing and certification services.

“This expansion to our campus is an investment in its mission to serve our students and industry as HIWT is dedicated to welding training and education excellence,” says Scott Mazzulla, HIWT president and chief executive officer. “This new state-of-the-art building will educate next-generation welders and welding professionals. For those current and future certified welding inspectors and certified welders looking to gain continuing education or acquire new certifications, this building is certainly designed to provide that successful environment.”
