MIG 2 continues to develop welding techniques for all of the basic weld joints while focusing on filet welds. In addition, you will learn how to cut with a plasma torch and prep metal to be welded.

tig 1

learn the basics of Tungsten Inert Gas welding (TIG). Development of limb independence and torch control. Gaining a better understanding of the elements of welding in order to control them as you move through the weld zone with the TIG torch.

tig 2

Have you heard of “stack of dimes”? That was originated in TIG welding. In this class you will learn how to identify a good TIG weld and develop arc control technique. 


smaw (stick)

Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), informally known as stick welding, is a manual arc welding process that uses a consumable electrode covered with a flux to lay the weld.
