What you can expect during this course

Welding training is highly prized simply because of the complexity of using such a device. The aim is to weld steels and aluminium using the MAG and pulsed MIG processes. As with other welding courses, the course is practice-based and allows for individualized follow-up based on the welding activities of the participants. This course is intended for beginners or people wishing to improve their skills, working in various fields such as bodywork, locksmithing, metal construction, agricultural mechanics, civil engineering mechanics, mechanical welding.

After this training, you will be able to make full use of our welding machine for your assembly and construction projects.

The goal is to understand the different MIG welding processes. The practical step is to set up the high-quality welding machine provided. Throughout the training, safety standards will be applied so that you don’t hurt yourself or hurt other people around you. We have special equipment to protect the surrounding environment visually and for evacuation of smoke.

About the equipment used in this course

By applying a constant voltage from a power supply, we can create an electric arc that fuses the base metal with a wire that’s fed through the welding torch. This is done at a constant velocity to assure a consistent beat on our wild. This process is called mig welding if we use an inert gas that is fed through the gun with the wire. This inert gas protects the Weld from atmospheric contamination and oxidization and other interferences like moisture. The inert gas does not react with the filler material or the bead.



Because it’s simple to use and efficient mig welding is generally used for heavy duty projects and heavy-duty work where a major repair is needed. Mig welding as compared to tig welding is quite a bit faster and a lot easier to learn for the beginner. The welds also don’t need that much cleaning and finishing at the end when you finish your welding. The joint stays firm and strong if the process is done correctly and the user is well practiced and can control his welds.

Our advice

Working with metals like steel and iron can get dirty during the grinding process therefore we recommend that you wear old clothes and use the equipment on site. We have all the welding helmets and glasses that you need as well as gloves and protection for other people around you when you use the welding equipment. It’s also a good idea to let us know if you have any requirements before the course by contacting us on our contact form or by e-mail directly.
