Each student will have an understanding on how the GTAW process works and be able to perform a fillet weld in all positions. Student will receive a certificate upon completion.

Course Cost: $2,400

GMAW–MIG

GMAW – MIG Aluminum Welding Course

7Our Aluminum MIG welding course will provide the foundation needed to make sound welds in the work environment. Participants will develop a working knowledge of welding techniques, equipment set up and operations. A hands on approach is used so that the focus and practice is emphasized directly on welding, applied metallurgy, blueprint reading and safety. Our training courses are designed to serve the needs of many individual skill levels from beginner to advanced welder. One hundred and ten (110) hours of booth instruction and ten (10) hours of lecture and practice make up this course.

Topics covered:

  • Weld troubleshooting and equipment set up
  • Techniques for making various welds in all positions
  • Explanation of welding symbols
  • Blueprint reading
  • Criteria for the selection of various electrodes
  • Selection of gases

Course Cost: $2,400
