This is a welding course for all; if you are a complete beginner with limited welding knowledge or an advanced welder requiring the British Standard 4872 coding.


The Advanced Welding is British Standard 4872 training and testing part 1 (steel) and part 2 (aluminium), the assessments are carried out by a Welding Institute Qualified, CSWIP trained Weld Tester.

On this practical hands-on course, you will have the opportunity to learn various processes and procedures, whilst working towards a recognised industry standard in welding, if desired.



The welding processes available are:


T.I.G-Tungsten Inert Gas. M.M.A-Manual Metal ARC known as arc or stick.
MIG/MAGS-Metal Arc Gas Shielded known as mig.

Materials: Stainless steel, aluminium, mild steel any thickness.

Positions: Horizontal, vertical H/V, flat, vertical and overhead.



Training and testing on all welding processes can be delivered in your company using your own equipment, as a bespoke course. The delivery and assessments are carried out by a Welding Institute Qualified, CSWIP trained Weld Tester.

PPE will be required for the course:
Appropriate PPE must be worn in the workshop (cotton boiler suit and steel toe capped boots must be brought by the candidate, although we can provide gloves and masks for the duration of the course). NB. Please be aware that due to the nature of the activity, contact lenses should not be worn in the welding workshop, although glasses may be worn with safety specs or goggles over the top.

  What You Will Learn

On this practical hands on course, you will have the opportunity to learn various processes and procedures, whilst working towards a recognised industry standard in welding if desired.

Beginners:
On this course you will gain a basic understanding of the different welding processes used in the industry and at home.

You will learn the health and safety aspects of welding, how to set up and use the equipment safely, how to set welding parameters relevant to the welding process required and the material to be joined.

You can choose from some or all of the following welding processes:

MAGS - Metal Arc Gas Shielded (MIG)

MMA - Manual Metal Arc (Stick)

TIG - Tungsten Inert Gas

Gas - Oxy-Acetylene

You could cover flat and Horizontal/Vertical (Downhand), single weld beads, re-joining of runs, build up weld runs to form a weld pad, welding Lap, Tee Fillet and Butt welds, inside and outside corner joints on steels of various thickness from 1.6-6mm.

Advanced:
British Standard 4872 training and testing part 1 (steel) and part 2 (aluminium) will be carried out by a Welding Institute Qualified, CSWIP trained Weld Tester.

BS4872 is a NON procedural welding test to determine welding competence, it is a recognised welding competence test required by Industry, should you wish to pursue welding as a career.

Weld testing involves set welds (Tee Fillet and Butt) in various positions.
