Who should attend?
The course is predominantly a practical course delivered in our workshop. It includes all the underpinning knowledge of welding as a profession, as well as the Health & Safety requirements.
Alongside the practical workshop sessions, there is an expectation that you do a small amount of reading and internet research to answer the assessment questions at the end of the course.
You will need to bring PPE, i.e. steel toe cap boots, flame-retardant overalls, hood and welding gloves. These can be purchased or hired from our shared facilities.
How am I assessed?
At the end of the programme, you will have produced two practical joints that pass visual inspection and take part in a short oral discussion with your tutor.
There are no formal entry requirements for this level of study. The course is for new starts and total beginners.
You can progress to another welding process at the beginner level, or you can proceed to the intermediate and advanced levels.
This course starts on any day of the week and runs from 09:30 to 16:00.

This programme has complimentary coffee and tea.
