This course is open to anyone who wishes to learn the basic safety, and operating procedures for the Gas-Metal Arc-Welding “MIG” welder in a friendly, safe, and all inclusive environment. New Canadians, LGBTT, and all others are welcome to sign up, and participate. There is a brief safety orientation, a demo period, and the remaining time is spent with as much hands-on as possible to help in the training process.
Safety equipment is provided on-site, however it is a good idea to come wearing long pants, ideally jeans that are free of holes, and you don’t mind if they get singed, or burned. Safety shoes are required, and if you don’t have your own, steel slip-on caps are available for use!
Further, if you’re an active member with the Fabrication Lab, and are already familiar with welding equipment, this course is not necessary, and we can find the time to assess your competency, and allow you access to the equipment right away!
The course is $57.00, which includes applicable taxes.
