Introduction to Welding-General Public


HS Student Fillet weld
 
The course is intended as an introduction to help individuals understand the differences in the process, basic settings and resources for additional learning.
We will perform GTAW(TIG), GMAW(MIG) and SMAW(STick) as a group and discuss various characteristics of the processes. After group welding, individuals will practice welding with MIG and/or Stick. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about other aspects of welding as time and space permits. This course is not intended to help you gain employment as a welder but may help you decide if this is a skill you may want to develop with future training.
 
This course is not intended for experienced welders, however any experience level is welcome. If you have existing skills and would like help with something specific, contact us before registering. 

A minimum of 8 participants is required and a maximum of 11. A parent and child may register but will be required to work together.
