Welding - TIG

This 36 hour (GTAW) course is for students with some training in STICK or MIG. TIG is most commonly usedto weld thin sections of stainless steel and light metals. It is the most difficult of all types of welding but can give you clean, strong, x-ray quality welds when mastered. Students will learn proper techniques for flat fillet welding with carbon steel using the GTAW process. Safety is covered in the first two sessions; math tutorial available.
Students must complete an easy application form, and provide their own protective eye wear, steel-toed footwear and welding gloves.
