In this combination welding class you'll get 16-hours of class over 2 weeks - and learn MIG & TIG welding back-to-back! Arc + Flame's standardized safety training will be taught once on the first day, allowing for additional torch time the following week. This "crash course" was designed to give you the knowledge and confidence you need to start working with this fun metal joining process. Never tried welding before? Don't be intimidated! Arc Flame's staff has experience training thousands of beginning welding students of all ages, genders and walks of life.
MIG Welding: Also known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) or Wire Feed Welding, MIG is a versatile welding process that is relatively easy to learn. A MIG system includes a constant voltage welding power source, a wire feeder, torch, shielding gas, gas regulator, and welding wire. MIG is typically the process we recommend for those who have never welded before, and great for welding steel and the equipment is relatively inexpensive.
TIG Welding: Also known as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding or "Heli-Arc" Welding, TIG is a welding process that utilizes a non-consumable Tungsten electrode to create an electric arc. TIG is the ideal welding application for exotic metals (aluminum, stainless, titanium) and thin sheet metal and tubing.
