UTI’s Miramar, FL, welding school is approximately 13 miles west of Hollywood. The 36-week Welding training program aims to help students understand the procedures and equipment used in the industry.

Students learn four main arc welding processes — gas metal arc welding (GMAW), shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) and gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW).

Guided by experienced instructors, students train using state-of-the-industry tools and equipment, helping prepare them to pursue roles in the field.

Upon completion of these welding courses, UTI Miramar graduates are presented with diplomas!


Welding can be a great career for detail-oriented people who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and solve problems. Welding can also be a good choice for those who consider themselves lifelong learners.

Several industries employ skilled welders. From shipyards to robotics factories, this career path leaves plenty of room for trying new things. But what about salary?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median annual salary for welders, cutters, solderers and brazers in the South Florida area was $46,930 in May 2022.26 This means half earned more and half earned less. Keep in mind that salary depends on several factors, including experience, employer, demand and cost of living in the area.


Most of our grads start out as entry-level technicians or in other entry-level roles as fabrication welders or welder fitters. As with any industry, over time, you may be able to advance in your career with hard work. Popular welding careers that those with advanced skills could pursue include:77

  • Manufacturing welding: These types of welders build products from metal and can work in various industries, such as mining, agriculture and construction.
  • Boatyard welding: Shipbuilding and boat-building welders create, assess and restore welds on ships, research vessels, and cargo boats. They typically are under contract and can travel from port to port internationally.

While the above entry-level and advanced welding paths can be exciting opportunities to pursue, keep in mind that the availability of each role is linked to the demand of the local area.
