Industrial Welding Training

Industrial Welding Training helps plant maintenance workers develop a working knowledge of and learn the theory behind gas and arc welding techniques and equipment.

For maintenance mechanics who need to learn welding theory.

Industrial Welding Training helps plant maintenance workers develop a working knowledge of and learn the theory behind gas and arc welding techniques and equipment, and the cutting of iron, steel, pipe, and nonferrous metals.

Trainees receive an overview of basic mathematics, print reading, and safety, followed by the fundamentals of metallurgy, electricity, and weld inspection. Since welding demands repeated hands-on practice, make sure your employees have easy and frequent access to oxyacetylene and shielded metal arc (stick electrode) welding equipment.

Program graduates will develop the expertise to:
