One day MMA/MIG welding course



Here, at Allied Welding, we are pleased to offer an insight into the vast world of both Arc & MIG welding. Ideal for people who like the idea of being able to weld, but do not want to commit to a lengthy course over many hours and several sessions. We are able to cover a lot more material whilst providing you with more time with the teacher than what you would get with a normal college class. The idea is to take enthusiastic people (male or female) that have never welded before or that just want to brush up on their skills over an enjoyable and relaxed day in our fully equipped workshop and enable them to either carry on with their new-found skills at home, in their garage or workshop or should you wish to progress further we would be glad to recommend local colleges or training centres that can enhance your new-found skill. There are many people that have a restoration project on an old car or motorcycle. How about those gates that need fixing or that broken part that could easily be fixed with a little knowledge of welding. That is the idea of this short course; to give encouragement to try something that perhaps otherwise would never be attempted. You will be welcomed into our comfortable reception area, where refreshments are available. Information. Please wear work clothes suitable for the environment. Long-sleeved garments are essential. A leather apron and welding gauntlets are supplied. If you are fitted with a heart pacemaker or wear contact lenses please consult your doctor or/and your optician before booking this course. If you are travelling from further afield and would like to make a weekend to explore the Essex countryside or coast after or before your experience we can suggest a few following places to stay: Premier Inn Rayleigh or Basildon, Holiday Inn Basildon or Southend to name but a few. - We have Full Comprehensive Insurance - Approved by an I.O.S.H Trained member in Managing Health and Safety - Overseen by a tutor with 15 years of experience - All Tutors are City & Guilds trained and regularly refreshed - Full Extraction of welding fume is supplied to conform with regulation - Up to date Fire Inspection Certificates - Industry Coded welding tutor Protective footwear is essential, if you do not have your own we can provide for a cost of £ 20.00 + VAT If you do not have suitable clothing or your own welders overalls can be provided at a special cost of £ 25.00 + VAT Please advise us on any medical conditions.
