Merrill Institute Celebrates 10 Years in Operation

The Merrill Institute has taken pride in offering our students comprehensive, state-of-the-art, hands-on welding training since it was founded in 2011. As we venture into the New Year, we have a lot to be thankful for as we celebrate 10 years in operation.

For the last 10 years, we have had the pleasure of providing our students with the unique opportunity to see a live, working manufacturing plant in action as they learn from AWS-certified Inspectors and Educators. In just 12 weeks, they learn the skills and knowledge required to embark on a successful career in welding. Every student who completes the Merrill Institute’s welding program leaves with the confidence and tools they need to excel in today’s challenging workplaces.

As we reflect on the last 10 years of operation, we are truly grateful for the 394 students that have graduated from this program, the community of hiring companies that employ our graduates and our awesome team that come to work each and every day with the “failure is not an option” mindset. We are looking forward to many more years of providing students with the opportunity to achieve their goals and embark in a career that is one of the fastest growing professions in the U.S.

If you are ready to join the 394 students who have put themselves on the fast track to a career that’s dynamic, interesting and fun, apply today at or call 989.462.0322 to speak with our enrollment specialist.
