This programme is ideal if you require more advanced skills in Manual Metal Arc, Metal Arc Gas Shielded or Tungsten Arc Gas Shielded Welding.

Programme Aims:
This programme is ideal if you require more advanced skills in Manual Metal Arc, Metal Arc Gas Shielded or Tungsten Arc Gas Shielded Welding.
Only Tungsten Arc Gas Shielded Welding can be studied on the following materials:
• Aluminium
• Mild Steel
• Stainless Steel

For school leavers this is a more advanced level programme designed to offer a practical understanding of welding.  It provides the opportunity for you to progress to training at a higher level, find employment, or select the competences relevant to your job.  For mature students this qualification can provide the opportunity to develop a practical knowledge and experience along side a career in welding/general engineering.

Career Opportunities:
Your qualification may lead to occupations such as: Welder, Fabricator, Plater, General Engineer, Engineering Repair and Construction, Motor vehicle body repair worker, or Armed Services Personnel.

Programme Content:
This is a modular programme made up five practical tasks for each welding process. There is also a short oral examination.
Practical tasks are carried out so the tutor can assess your competence.  The tasks are mostly standard across the different processes.


An example of the practical requirements are shown below:

Manual Metal Arc Welding Level 2
• Produce a butt weld in the PA flat position
• Produce a multiple-run tee fillet in the PB horizontal/vertical position
• Produce a lap fillet weld in the PF vertical-up Position
• Produce a tee fillet weld in the PF vertical-up Position
• Produce a butt weld in the PF vertical-up position

The qualification is process specific, so you can choose which process you intend to study. You will then have to complete the associated practical tasks. You can only study one process over the 18 week course.

There are no formal academic entry requirements, however it is expected that you will have achieved a suitable welding qualification at Level 1. An ability to show that you are keen to develop practical workshop skills and can follow instructions is necessary.

This is a modular programme made up five practical tasks for each welding process. There is also a short oral examination.
Practical tasks are carried out so the tutor can assess your competence.  The tasks are mostly standard across the different processes.
