Veterans Welding Training Program

   United Automobile Workers – Ford (UAW-Ford) is dedicated to showing appreciation and support to our country’s Military Veterans and their families. Our nation’s Military Veterans have fulfilled great commitments in protecting our country’s freedom.


   UAW-Ford and Wounded Warriors Family Support have partnered to provide a training program in welding for U.S. Military Veterans. UAW-Ford is offering a six-week Welding Training Program, where selected Veterans will train and test for 1G through 4G welding certification.

    The program will prepare participants to pursue apprenticeships and entry-level positions in welding throughout our nation in industries such as automotive, ship building, construction and many others. The program will take place at UAW-Ford’s Technical Training Center in Lincoln Park, Mich., near Detroit. Please contact the us for additional information on the class schedule.

Wounded Warriors Family Support will provide assistance to Veterans selected to participate in the program. Wounded Warriors Family Support will provide each participant with:

  • Double occupancy lodging (each participant will have a roommate)
  • Per diem for food
