What will I learn?

Our City & Guilds Level 3 MMA Welding course will take your skills to the next level and allows you to gain a formal industry standard qualification.

The level 3 award qualification can be completed individually on plate or pipe.

Suitable for those who have previously completed a Level 2 qualification or undertake welding in their jobs with previous welding experience, this course will cover

  • Producing a butt weld in the horizontal position
  • Producing a tee fillet weld in the horizontal position
  • Producing a tee fillet weld in the overhead position
  • Producing an outside corner weld in the overhead position
  • Producing a butt weld in the overhead position
  • Factors that influence weld quality and Health and Safety and process requirements relevant to welding

    The City and Guilds Level 3 course takes the skills gained from the Introduction to Welding course (welding in the horizontal position) and the level two (welding in the vertical position) and progresses to full positional welding overhead.

    Please note that learners need to bring safety boots, fire retardant overalls and their own set of welding gauntlets to the course. The latter are available at https://www.amazon.co.uk/Welding-Leather-Gaunlets-Resistant-Welders/dp/B00E62CMAE/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=welding+gloves&qid=1593510261&sr=8-5

    Where will it lead me?

    The level 3 plate qualification allows advancement to specialist pipe welding or welder ‘coding’ qualifications.

    Entry Requirements
