Design of Our Courses

Real Educational Services provides the highest quality training to each student by creating innovative, interesting and technically sound courses. Each course is designed using multiple sets of training aids realizing that hands-on training is the most important aspect of learning. Students participate in practical exercises, which duplicate the real work situations that could be encountered by the welding inspector. Experiences in the classroom and shop environment are progressively more challenging as the student continues through the curriculum. Our online training offers the convenience of completing lessons at your own pace, flexibility of working around your schedule and the financial benefits of not traveling to a training location while providing the student a direct line of communication to the instructor via email. Please check our website occasionally to find out what has just been released! We are continually striving to improve the success of our students. We realize there are several aspects to consider when preparing for a timed test. Test taking skills, managing the time given and using the pre-printed test forms shouldn’t be a surprise on test day. When attending our Preparatory Courses students take multiple timed, practice tests on forms similar to those used in testing and receive immediate feedback of their test results.
