Over 13 years ago Troy Johnson, founder of The Fab School, had trouble finding qualified help at his personal fabrication shop. His passion for metal fabrication and specifically off-road pushed him to open The Fab School in 2005.
“I had a bright idea of taking in all these people that wanted to learn and work for free and converting it into a school.”
There are 6.2 million jobs out there available, many of those are welding and fabrication, and the majority of them don’t require a degree. That’s where we come in. There is a definite skills gap in our industry. Without shop class in middle school and high school, we are seeing the skills gap grow higher each year. We see many students who aren’t quite geared up for college and THAT’S OKAY, we are happy to serve them. We are hands-on and have fun while teaching the necessary skills to be successful in a career in the metal fabrication and welding industry.
“That’s where I came from.” – Troy Johnson, founder.
At The Fab School, we thrive on off-road, because of our passion and experience, but the school is placing many people in aerospace, railroad, medical, set design, art, and providing our graduates with so many other opportunities after they finish their hands-on training. We graduate about 190-200 students per year and we are placing 97% of our graduates into the field of fabrication.
