Registered as a Career College under the Ontario Career Colleges Act, 2005


LJP Skills Training opened its doors in 1992 in response to a need for locally trained individuals to fill employer demands for welders. Our college serves students from Cambridge, Guelph, Kitchener, Waterloo as well as outlying communities. We speak with our industrial partners regularly regarding their employment requirements and our shop is contacted directly by local employers recruiting qualified personnel.


In 2006, LJP added pipe welding training to the Lightspeed Welding Training and Test Centre. Welding courses available to students include programs focusing on skill development in general welding (GMAW, SMAW, FCAW & GTAW), pipe welding for beginners and advanced pipe welding for welders. Specific skills’ upgrading programs, CWB and TSSA testing are also available.


Our instructors have both instructional and practical experience having worked in their fields of expertise before joining LJP Skills. Students benefit from our instructors’ on-the-job experience and insights re: employer expectations. Graduates of LJP Skills Training leave their programs with a thorough understanding of industry demands and the skills to meet those demands.
