Are you interested in finding out what welding is all about? Or do you hobby around at home or on the farm with a welder but would like to know the finer details to get better results? 

UCOL’s MIG, TIG, OAW and Arc Welding (Night Class Welding) programme will help you learn the basics and sharpen your welding skills. The programme can also be used as a welding refresher or towards professional development.
 
Night Welding
The welding is performed on different thickness low carbon steel, (1.6 12mm) and weld joints, mainly in the down hand, (flat) position.

Demonstrations are based around:
  • MMAW (Stick welding)
  • GMAW (MIG welding)
  • GTAW (TIG welding is taught and practical for students, working with stainless steel and aluminium)
The course provides students with more insight/practical experience with the different welding processes, machines, metals, problem solving and avoiding weld defects. As well as the above mentioned welding processes, it is possible to have demonstrations/practical activities organised with oxy-acetylene welding/cutting or plasma cutting.

This welding course is structured around a limited number of students and is currently offered twice a year. If a higher level of training and or welding certificate training is required then this may be offered at a later stage.
