Design of our Courses

Real Educational Services, Inc. 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.

New to our offerings in 2015 will be a growing list of online courses.  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 also investing in our students to improve their test taking skills. Purchase of new testing equipment and forms now allows our students to take practice examinations in class and receive immediate feedback of their results.
