    One Day MMA/MIG Welding Course

    Here, at Allied Welding, we are pleased to offer an insight into the vast world of both Arc & MIG welding.

    Ideal for people who like the idea of being able to weld, but do not want to commit to a lengthy course over many hours and several sessions. We are able to cover a lot more material whilst providing you with more time with the teacher than what you would get with a normal college class.

    The idea is to take enthusiastic people (male or female) that have never welded before or that just want to brush up on their skills over an enjoyable and relaxed day in our fully equipped workshop and enable them to either carry on with their new-found skills at home, in their garage or workshop or should you wish to progress further we would be glad to recommend local colleges or training centres that can enhance your new-found skill.

    There are many people that have a restoration project on an old car or motorcycle. How about those gates that need fixing or that broken part that could easily be fixed with a little knowledge of welding. That is the idea of this short course; to give encouragement to try something that perhaps otherwise would never be attempted.

    You will be welcomed into our comfortable reception area, where refreshments are available.

    Information.
