Here are some excerpts from client quality surveys:

Lew has a down to earth style, which makes even the true novice feel comfortable. We particularly liked his approach, which favored actually attempting a technique or procedure and reviewing the results versus just sticking with a more textbook approach.

I believe Lew is a tremendous asset to any organization that is trying to improve its welding process, and I fully anticipate working with Mr. Kinney in the future to train additional personnel.

J.K., OH

Hands on, one-on-one training is great. I could see improvement in my employee’s attitudes towards performing quality welds and skills immediately.

K.S., CA

Classes and testing given by experienced welders and welding instructors who are very knowledgeable, very well taught; no improvement needed to program.

I have been a corporate trainer for 20 years, and Lew’s welding training and testing program is one of the best I have experienced.
