Basic Welding Courses
1 - 5 Days/Weekend
MIG, TIG & MMA (ARC)
Central Building and Welding Academy is well known for being the best established construction training centre in the Midlands - our Welding Training is no exception to this!
If you are looking to learn any type of welding we are able to assist you with this, there are 3 basic types of welding processes and they all have their own positives.
MIG - Manual Inert Gas welding is the most common type of welding and the easiest of the welding process to learn and is ideally suited for light fabrication welding and classic cars/bikes etc using carbon steel.
MMA - Manual Metal Arc is mainly used for pipe welding and on site welding outside due to having no gas and is suited mainly for heavy repairs on steel.
TIG - Tungsten Inert Gas is the hardest of the welding processes to master but is also the neatest of all the welds and is predominantly used on aluminium and stainless steel.
