This welding class covers the basics and is for the do-it-yourself welder. Students learn about the different welding processes (oxy-acetylene, stick, M.I.G. and T.I.G.) and get hands-on experience with those techniques. See how the characteristics of metal change as we weld them, i.e. heat treating. Safety is a priority and students are instructed in safety procedures.
This course does not offer a certification in welding; however, it may be valuable in deciding a welding operation you like best or in purchasing a welder that works for you. Class size is limited to 4.
Students should plan on purchasing a welding shirt, gloves and eye protection by the first class. Suggested stores are AirGas (Bangor and online),Matheson Gas (Bangor and online) or through Amazon. All metal supplies and helmets will be provided.
