VA School of Metal

 

We Are Dedicated Educators

The Virginia School of Metal was founded in 2012 by Steve Brownell, President and owner of Brownell Metal Studio, Inc. Steve has over 40 years of welding and metalworking experience, ranging from heavy industrial welding and fabrication to nuclear welding. Before starting the VA School of Metal, his focus was on the fine art of architectural and ornamental metal working. 

Since 2012, Steve Brownell and the instructors of the VA School of Metal have helped over 5,000 students find their way into the welding industry, and have increased the number and capacity of their classes year over year. Classes at our welding school are held at Zion Crossroads in Troy, VA, just minutes from Charlottesville, and we offer schedules to accommodate every skill level. Students work with state-of-the-art equipment and learn not only to weld, but also many other skills necessary to become a top-notch fabricator. 

We invite you to join us and discover your inner passion – at the Virginia School of Metal, creativity has no limits.

First-Rate Course Offerings

From single day classes that provide fundamental knowledge to career bundles and AWS Certification classes, we offer a wide variety of class times and schedules to suit your needs. All classes at our welding school are taught by Steve Brownell and our certified welding instructors.
