Purpose of Seminar

This Maintenance Welding course was created to bring students up to speed in their knowledge of maintenance welding as quickly and safely as possible. It includes discussions on skills improvement and is specifically designed for welding technicians and other personnel working in industrial plants, construction, manufacturing, metalworking and fabrication shops, and other similar facilities or applications. It provides a practical, real world welding education taught by instructors who have actually spent time in the field. Novice technicians receive a comprehensive overview of welding best-practices and experienced technicians use it as great refresher course for continuing education or to learn a few new ideas or tricks of the trade. Students’ specific needs and concerns are also addressed during the class so that they can go back to their workplace and immediately apply what they’ve learned.

Students will learn to reduce equipment downtime, improve overall efficiency and safety, and fix problems they’ve never been able to fix before. Overall, this maintenance training program is designed to teach students how to produce smooth, strong, quality welds while establishing a culture of safe work practices among employees.

Who Should Take This Course?

Creating high quality welds requires a basic understanding of the different welding techniques, processes and use of metals. Different jobs require different approaches. Not all welding is the same. Questions that need to be asked when considering a weld include…

  • What process do I use?
  • What joining works best?
  • What metals should I use?
  • Why did my last weld fail?
  • How do I prevent it from failing again?
  • Am I safe?

This course will answer these and other important welding questions.
