The Las Vegas Institute of Welding (LVIW) was officially organized and then licensed by the State of Nevada in 2019. LVIW was born out of an idea that was created many years ago by the owner. Welding and fabrication have been in her family, as well as her husbands for more than 50 years. During her adult years, she has continued this tradition, working alongside her husband having daily involvement in both ownership, management, and leadership roles in other fabrication and metal finishing companies. During those years, she has encountered the difficulty of finding qualified welders and fabricators at various skill levels in the southern Nevada job market. She noted that during the last decade, while there has been huge employer demands for welders within the welding industry, training and talent growth have not kept pace. In today’s market, there is a definite shortage, especially in the number of people entering this specialty trade. Her entrepreneurial and civic desires are leading LVIW to offer entry level training for those individuals interested in gaining the training and skills necessary for an entry level position within the welding and fabrication job market sector.
