Qualified welders are needed in different branches of metal and building industries, as well as in pipelines, automotive, aircraft – and shipbuilding industries. Simply stated, welding is a process of permanently joining materials (usually metals) through localized coalescence resulting from suitable combination of temperature, pressure and metallurgical conditions. Depending upon the combination of temperature and pressure from a high temperature with no pressure to a high pressure with low temperature, a wide range of welding processes have been developed. Various welding processes differ in the manner in which temperature and pressure are combined and can be classified as gas welding, arc welding, resistance welding, solid state welding, thermo-chemical welding and radiant energy welding. Out of these types, gas welding and arc welding are the two most common methods employed in industry.

This 6-hour welding course provides the student with the basic understanding of the theory, principles, methods, and techniques related to modern arc welding. This course is aimed at civil, mechanical, structural and process engineers, facility managers, H & S professionals, environmentalists, energy auditors and anyone who wants a basic understanding of welding principles.
