Metalwork is a lot like having super-powers! This five hour MIG welding class is designed to familiarize you with the required equipment and establish your confidence so you feel comfortable welding on your own. You will be introduced to different machines and can expect to walk out of the class ready to weld safely and independently. MIG welding (also called Metal Inert Gas or GMAW) is the easiest type of welding to learn. We strongly recommend students begin with MIG welding on steel before attempting other more difficult processes like TIG (tungsten inert gas, the best option for aluminum) or oxy-acetylene or arc (stick, aka SMAW) welding.
This class is for complete beginners, no prior experience is necessary. The small class size allows us to provide specific and focused instruction, if you are not a total novice you will be learning more advanced techniques.
The workshop fee includes all shop materials and equipment; just show up in long pants and sturdy non-sneaker shoes.
