During the five day course, trainees will receive instruction and will be able to demonstrate their ability and understanding of how to:

  • Protect themselves and others from the risks involved with welding.
  • Identify equipment and key safe working practises.
  • Select and use a range of equipment and welding consumables.
  • Select welding parameters and program them into a Synergic Machine.
  • Produce a preliminary welding procedure specification and work within its scope.
  • Produce a single-run and multi-run fillet in all positions.
  • Produce a lap fillet in all positions.
  • Undertake a coded welding test.
  • Leave welding equipment safe and fit for others to use.


This 5 day course is internally certified by CEATA.

Welding training is delivered in accordance with the requirements of BS 4872-1 which means successful assessment could allow trainees to qualify as a coded welder: All trainees will undertake practical assessment and could be certified to ISO 9606-2 (aluminium), EN 287-1 (steel or stainless steel) or BS 4872 Parts 1 or 2.

Who is the Course for?
