Who We Are
My name is Joel Stanley; Founder and Instructor at Northern New England Welding Institute. For many years now it’s been my vision to open a welding trade school here in New England. For too long in America we’ve promoted liberal arts degrees over the skilled trades. We’ve told our students that there is no future in working with your hands. It’s a lie……… There is a skills gap right now that is painfully being felt by manufacturers, fabricators, and contractors across the nation. America needs welders!
I’ve spent 20 years in the industry working as a Welder, Fabricator, Inspector, and Quality Manager in shop and field jobsites throughout the northeast. I’m passionate about using my talents, skills, and experiences to help others achieve their goals. I want you to experience the satisfaction and dignity of hard work with a purpose – welding can give you that pathway. We are not the biggest, the fanciest, or even the coolest welding school in America, but I promise you that I can teach you the skills that are in demand in the welding industry and you have my word that no one will work harder to see you become successful as you begin your journey as a Great American Welder!
