Course description

When to use a MIG welder versus a TIG welder can be can to distinguish. TIG welding is more commonly used for thinner gauge materials. Items that are made with this process are things like kitchen sinks or anything that requires a precise, gentle touch. TIG welding is often a cleaner process, but much slower and technical than MIG welding.

Mig Welding/Tig Welding is an 8-week course designed to instruct you in basic GMAW(MIG) and GTAW(TIG) welding. You will also learn the practical and theoretical, fundamentals and procedures. In this course we will explore both methods of welding along with joint preparation, different thickness gauges on metal and plate, types and sizes of filler metal, shielding gases, and more.
