Online Programs

There are currently no online programs to learn welding. The skills needed include using tools correctly, and must be done under supervision. Welding is a difficult skill to learn, and doing it online does not cut it.

Maintaining and Renewing Your License

To renew a welding certification in Oklahoma, you must send in the $25 renewal fee. If the renewal fee is being sent late, you must send in an extra $10. However, you can only renew the certification up to a year after it has expired. After that, you must take the certification test again to renew your license. Fee must be paid to the Department of Labor.

Renewal notices are not sent out. Instead, the licenses are set to expire on the last day of your birth month. Licenses must be renewed every year.
