What will I learn?

This practical course is an introduction to TIG welding designed for learners who are beginners or need to weld for hobby purposes . Learners progress at their own pace to develop a range of welding skills.

This course will cover

  • how to use the face mask, switch on the gas and set the pressures, set up the Tig welder and set the controls
  • welding of mild steel plate to yield a number of welds including outside corner weld, Butt weld, overlap weld and tee fillet joints
  • tungsten selection, general introduction into welding procedures & technology
  • setting up of Welding equipment in terms of plant parameters and machine settings
  • The Health and Safety aspects of TIG welding

    Where will it lead me?

    Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to operate a TIG plant. However, it does not aim to make delegates into expert welders and further practice may be beneficial to hone the welding skills acquired.
