Welding and Metal Fabrication


Have you always wanted to work with metal? Are you fascinated by the almost limitless possibilities of metalworking? Then this is the vocational training for you!
In this course, you will learn all the basics of metalworking. This ranges from working by hand with a hacksaw or file, to using various power tools such as angle grinders and drill presses, to using manual arc welding. You will also learn how to cut and weld steel with an oxy-acetylene torch. In addition to practical knowledge, you will also gain extensive theoretical knowledge, such as the application of safety-related work techniques and the properties of different metals. So if you enjoy working with metal and want to learn more about how to built up complex structures from it, such as domes, then this is the training you should apply for!
