1 Day Welding Course

The course involves intensive 1-day practical training. There are options to extend the time frame if necessary at checkout! The course is available on every weekday.

Who Should Attend?

The one-day introductory course will teach you the foundation skills needed to start welding training if you have little or no experience and would like to start at the beginning. It is an excellent programme to develop the skills to support a hobby or side project that you may have.

This course is for beginners only and so if you have experience in this process an intermediate or advanced programme may be more appropriate. If you are unsure, you can book a welding skills analysis or ring 0800 246 1483 for advice.

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.

Entry requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for this level of study. The course is for new starts and total beginners.

Further qualifications

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.
