What you need to do

This is an introductory course aimed at anyone from the complete novice to the more experienced welder in need of a refresher.

Who should attend

Many companies who have MIG welding equipment either do not use it all, or under utilise it because they do not know how to get the most out of the equipment.MIG welding has a reputation for producing welds with poor fusion and low strength when compared to other welding processes. This is an unfair assumption as weld failures can usually be attributed to the use of incorrect techniques, settings, and consumables. All of these issues are addressed during this one day training course.
