This course is delivered in the evening, two hours per week for ten weeks.

Welders have never been in higher demand than they are right now. 2022 is the perfect time to start your career as a professional welder with our Expert Instructor Tony Carter. Tony has welded around the world, and is internationally recognised as one of the best in the business and we are so proud that he is part of our team.

This specialist course will take you from novice to a full award in welding in just ten weeks, giving you the perfect platform to be employed as a trainee welder or come back to us in September to start working your way through your professional licenses (coded welding).
