The Hobart Institute of Welding Technology (HIWT) has opened the Next Generation Welder Learning Facility on its Troy, Ohio, campus. The 16,000-square-foot building began hosting classes in late October 2016, and is said to be an important addition to the 13-acre campus that has trained over 100,000 welders.

The new facility features three classrooms that seat up to 120 students. The facility also houses a dedicated non-destructive laboratory and classroom for hands-on liquid penetrant and magnetic particle inspection and training. A large welder performance qualification laboratory serves for destructive testing. Hobart says the 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,” says Scott Mazzulla, HIWT president and CEO. “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.”
