About the Course


Welding is an invaluable skill for many repairs around the home, workshop or car, yet few people know how to weld, but anyone can do it. Spend the day in our fully equipped workshop and learn the correct way to Arc, Mig and Gas weld.

One we've introduced you to the workshop and basic tools, you will start learning how to Arc Weld before going on to Gas and Mig. This is a highly practical course and you will spent the majority of the day on the tools learning the following:

•Basic metallurgy; metal, steel and non-ferrous
•Judging heat of metal by its colour
•Effect on metal of different temperatures
•Theory and practical use of Arc, Mig and Gas welding
•Testing welds
•Dressing welds; grinder and file

During the afternoon session you will concentrate on the type of welding (arc, gas or mig) that is most applicable to the type of welding that you wish to carrry out.

Our one day welding course is perfect to teach you to weld, and most of our students leave the us to go home and practice their new skill safely and successfully.

There are only four-places on each course allowing you to progress at your own pace and work with our experienced welding tutor, Rob Buckley. Students are welcome to bring in their own welder if they have one, so they can be shown how to use it properly or have Rob set it up.

Groups, companies or organisations are welcome to contact us to arrange a bespoke course and date to suit.

The course day is 9.30am to 5pm and we usually run at least course per month. Please phone or email to find out upcoming dates.

Just had a great day learning to weld with Rob.

Great instruction with an easy atmosphere to learn and make mistakes. Lots of hands on practice that definitely takes away the fear of welding for the first time.

Would highly recommend the course.
