MIG Welding 2: Make Better Welds

After completing the MIG Welding safety and basic use (SBU) class, you can practice specific joints and improve weld bead quality under guidance of an instructor.

In this class, many different joints will be discussed, including those required from professional certified welders. This will be an opportunity for you to ask specific questions about welding, or about your project. The instructor will guide you through the class, but will also focus on your own project, for it to turn out as you planned. Participants will perform at their own rates.

Projects

  • Guided practice with the instructor. You can also bring your project and ask the instructor any questions you have.

Prerequisites & Other Requirements

  • The class will be conducted in English.
