BS4872 MIG Compliant Welding

There are many different skills and techniques within the scope of hot working of metals in the broad skill field of welding.  Each one of the many and varied welding techniques calls for some specialised skills and knowledge and this three-day practical, hands-on welding course at our Technology Training Centre in Aston, Birmingham is designed to give delegates the skills and knowledge they need to produce welded joints using MIG welding equipment.

  • Course content
  • During the course the delegates will cover the following subject areas.

    • Inspection procedure for equipment
    • Daily check list
    • Maintenance inspection procedure
    • Gas cylinder recognition and identification, if appropriate
    • Maintenance inspection procedure for pressure regulators, if appropriate
    • Set up of equipment and welding practice
    • Weld types – flat straight welds (left and right), fillets, butt welding and vertical welding
  • Pre-requisites
  • This course is suitable for maintenance engineers and technicians, and those who wish to use MIG welding equipment. It is also ideal for those who wish to update or refresh their current welding skill set.

  • Assessment
  • Whilst there is no formal assessment on this course, delegates will need to demonstrate that they can operate MIG Welding equipment and produce satisfactory quality welds during the practical elements of the course. On successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a certificate of attendance. 

  • More details
  • Career progression:

    This 3 day course has some short classroom sessions to present the underpinning theory of this subject area but is heavily focussed on the practical training in welding techniques.

    By the end of the course, delegates will be able to safely set up MIG welding equipment and produce good quality welds, safely and in accordance with best practice. The content of this course may be used to support NVQ programmes.
