AWS Instructor's Institute


The AWS Instructors Institute provides welding instructors an opportunity to enhance and strengthen their teaching skills, experience hands-on learning of new teaching techniques, and learn more about AWS programs such as SENSE.

Meeting together with other instructors, the participants will be able to communicate and share their experiences in a setting that is devoted to their specific concerns. Each year, a welding instructor is selected at each of the 22 District Conferences to attend the institute, held at AWS HQ in Doral (Miami), Florida.

Weather in Miami

The weather in Miami during July is hot, with temperatures in the mid to upper-90’s. High humidity can make this temperature feel even warmer. However, rain showers during the afternoon tend to cool things down.

What to Wear During the Day…

Our schedule includes classroom time and time in our welding laboratory. Please bring your own personal protective equipment including welding helmet, welding jacket or protective sleeves, welding gloves, overalls or working clothes and high top boots. If you use prescription safety glasses or welding helmet lenses, bring those. You do not have to bring any tools such as brushes or chipping hammers.
