Welding Courses

Welding is a highly stilled trade and hard to get the weld right first time; professionally trained and qualified welders reduce the need for having to re-work the job in the short-term.

It is expected for all UK qualified welders to adhere to the strict European standards set down; not only for the importance of competence with the work, but also placing tough controls on the industry to protect users. Increasing numbers of companies are expected to make sure their welders are trained both practically& qualified to practice.
