OcuWeldTM & MobileWeld Education Innovations

The team at StrataSkills brings skilled trade education directly to organizations seeking to upskill, reskill, or certify current employees or train new hires. Backed by educators with decades of experience at our leading trade schools, we have spent more than 70 years innovating in the field of skilled trades education.

The future is less about credit accumulation and much more about skill acquisition. Now is the time to marry career technical education with new pathways to careers and lifelong learning. Here are two recent examples from the world of welding.


OcuWeld is a Virtual Reality (VR) welding simulator that was conceived and designed by expert welding instructors for Tulsa Welding School students. OcuWeld provides students with the opportunity to practice hands-on classroom training in a virtual environment. OcuWeld makes concerns about safety, access, and cost of materials irrelevant.

How Does it Work?

OcuWeld fully immerses users in a virtual environment that mimics classroom lab training and provides access to more than 19 different modules. It provides enhanced academic benefits for students in three primary ways:


OcuWeld is fully self-contained within an Oculus Quest 2 device. Users can access OcuWeld any place, any time, with or without internet connection, as long as they have their Oculus device with them.


OcuWeld provides users with the autonomy to drill down into processes or positions where they feel the need for additional practice or have a stronger personal interest.


OcuWeld amplifies the user experience by providing supplemental learning outside of a classroom environment, reinforcing the skills and knowledge the users will need in the field.


Our MobileWeld training units offer the perfect opportunity for companies or organizations to provide additional training for welders onsite.

How Does it Work?

Once we evaluate your training needs to develop a plan, schedule, and quote, we will bring one (or more) of our three MobileWeld training units to your location. Staffed by an experienced, American Welding Society (AWS) Certified TWS instructor, and completely equipped with welding equipment and supplies,
we’ll have eight individual welding stations per unit ready when you are. Multiple groups can be rotated throughout the day for maximum coverage.
