Overview of course
The Level 1 course is designed to provide the student with a sound grounding in welding studies and is intended for those who need to obtain a basic skill in welding. The course is very hands on and takes place in our well equipped workshop.
The topics covered are Health and Safety in the workshop, tools and safety equipment and the safe and correct use of welding sets.
The programme includes five mandatory practical assessments and an oral test which covers the knowledge requirements for the programme of study. The oral test will be carried out by the assessor following the successful completion of the practical tests.
This course will be run at West Suffolk College, Bury St Edmunds on a Wednesday evening from 6pm - 9pm.
Due to a recent change in Government funding this course is either Co-funded or fully funded. If you are in receipt of any benefits or low wage (less than £18525 gross per annum) then the course will be fully funded. If either of these are not applicable then the course fee of £360 would be payable.
No specific prior qualifications, learning or experience are required for candidates undertaking the Level 1.
