Level 2 Certificate in Fabrication and Welding
What are the Course Details?
Through a variety of theory and practical sessions you will develop your fabrication and welding skills to an intermediate level. You will learn how to weld using different processes and materials, cut and shape plate work, handle engineering information as well as build effective working relationships.
The welding processes you will cover include manual metal arc, metal inert gas and tungsten inert gas and you will chose to specialise in one of the three processes. The practical and theory elements of the course will prepare you to progress straight into employment including an apprenticeship.

Equal Opportunities for All
The College is committed to reducing and eliminating all forms of disadvantage and discrimination by legislation and positive action.
The progression towards equality will ensure that no group receives less favourable treatment, thereby enabling all learners, regardless of race, religious belief, gender, sexuality, gender reassignment, pregnancy/maternity, age and disability to have equal access to the provision of goods, services, education, training, facilities and premises.
