This 12-week course is a progression from the City & Guilds Level 1 welding skills. You will either progress to level 2 of the L1 welding skill you hold certification for, or you will practice and be assessed on a different ONE of the welding techniques listed below
SM9L1MIG - MIG/MAGS - Metal Arc Gas Shielded Welding
SM9L1MMA - MMA - Manual Metal Arc Welding
SM9L1OXY - OXY - Oxyacetylene Welding
SM9L1TIG - TIG - Tungsten Arc Gas Shielded Welding (Low Carbon Steel)
Each of the above courses in welding techniques are aimed at individuals wanting to learn how to weld successfully. The course is very "hands-on" and takes place in our well-equipped welding workshop. The topics covered are health and safety in the workshop, tools and safety equipment, and safe and correct use of welding sets. This course is suitable for those who have aspects of welding in their trade area, such as motor vehicle, maintenance engineering and fabricators.
Progression to one of the other City & Guilds 3268 Level 1 units: - MIG/MAGS - Metal Arc Gas Shielded Welding, TIG -Tungsten Arc Gas Shielded Welding (Low Carbon Steel) or OXY - Oxyacetylene Welding. This will be followed by a visual inspection test. Or progression to City & Guilds Level 2 of the same welding, technique as the Level one unit you have a certificate for. All Level 2 courses use destructive testing, to gain a final Pass.
You will require a Level 1 Certificate of the same Welding Technique as the course on Level 2 you wish to enrol onto. No other formal qualifications are necessary. Students will need to provide their own overalls and steel toe-capped safety boots. Gloves and head shields/masks will be provided.
There will be a set of five practical tests after each of the units studied to assess practical skills to the level of the qualification.
All tests performed will be visually inspected for standard of finish and consistency.
