Metal Inert/Active Gas (MIG/MAG)

Manual Inert/Active Gas welding is the most common type of welding and the easiest of the welding process to learn, and is ideally suited for light fabrication welding and classic cars/bikes etc. using carbon steel.

Show More

Manual Metal Arc (MMA)

Manual Metal Arc is mainly used for pipe welding and on-site welding outside due to having no gas and is suited mainly for heavy repairs on steel.

Show More

Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG)

Tungsten Inert Gas is the hardest of the welding processes to master but is also the neatest of all the welds and is predominantly used on mild steel, aluminium and stainless steel.

What types of welding do we teach?

We teach 3 of the basic types of welding processes, each with its own positives.​ As training providers, the most important thing for us is that, by the end of the course, we will have built your confidence to start doing your own projects. That is why we employ only the best tutors: friendly, time-served & professional welders who have decades of on site welding experience. Therefore, our tutors have up to date industry knowledge and lots of experience in training people.

Once you have chosen which of the three welding processes you wish to learn, we often book people into a week where all of the other students are learning the same process. This makes it easier for both the staff and the students, as you will all be working towards the same goal. This basic course can be tailored to your individual or company needs, but this must be relayed to us when making the booking so that the tutors can have your materials prepped.

What can you expect to learn?

The main reason why codings were brought into the industry for professional welders was to highlight professionals who have mastered the art of putting down a proper weld: ensuring it penetrates the metal and fusing it together correctly, while focusing on making it structurally strong, as it is common when welding to only focus on making it all look nice.

We will teach you the basic principles of health and safety when welding, and the do’s and don’ts of the trade before you even start welding. You will also learn things such as: how to turn on the machines, machine operations, adjusting the wire speed, changing the rods or tungsten tips (depending on welding process picked), and settings according to the material thickness of what you are welding. 

You will master being able to put down a series of simple straight lines before you progress on to harder welds. Once the basics of how to weld have been mastered, we move you onto how to do the following four main types of welding: T-Fillet welds, Butt welds, pipe to plate and box section to plate.

Learning outcomes

These can all be tailored to your specific requirements, and metal thickness can be adjusted.

The course can be completed in the time you decide is best for you, as you can choose the number of days’ training you would like, depending on your experience and intentions.  Pricing is based on the number of days you choose and the standard you want to achieve.

Upon completion, the course comes with an in-house Certificate from our approved training centre, which proves that the students are able to: perform basic welding tasks, manage equipment to a competent standard and have a general understanding of safety procedures.
