One of eight accredited training facilities in Illinois and the only on-premise facility outside an educational institution

Did you know we have an in-house American Welding Society (AWS) certified training facility?  We are one of eight facilities accredited in Illinois, and the only one with training on-premise versus at an education institution.  At  On Site Repair Services, Inc. our AWS approved welding lab and facility is managed by our certified instructor, Wayne Abarca, who coordinates the entire in-house apprenticeship program.  By the end of the program, our apprentices are able to take their welder certification test in-house (includes bender test).

This on-premise training allows our skilled welders to remain up-to-date on the best practices and innovations in the field.  This in-depth training has led to our continued success in the field.
