About this Class

In this 2.5-hour, hands-on introduction, you will learn how to weld metal together with both a tack weld and a bead, creating different types of joints. The class will give you the ability to identify and remedy any problems with the bead. The class begins with a safety briefing, and includes instruction on the use of a handheld grinder. 

By the end of the class, you will have the opportunity to weld a simple, open-top metal box. 

The class is limited to three participants to ensure one-on-one learning and direct mentoring. Each participant will have the use of a fully equipped Miller 215 welder and welding station.
