What you'll learn in this welding class:

The TIG Welding course teaches students the basic principles involved in the set up and safe operation of the Tungsten Inert Gas process. Class will be lab/lecture style with opportunity to take notes, ask questions and receive hands on operation of the machines. Students will learn how to adjust the machines, strike an arc and join material as well as how to tell the difference between a good weld and a sub standard weld. The students will also learn how to troubleshoot problems associated with the process.

A $10 materials fee covers each student’s metal stock and welding consumables.

Important Note:

Equipment used in this class could be harmful to and/or affect the operation of pacemakers, implanted medical devices, prosthetics, or other similar devices. A doctor's note is required, before taking this class, for any individual with an implantable medical device.

The course was good however, we did not get to weld b/c the argon gas bottle was empty and there were no replacements. Jesse, the instructor, was super nice and offered me a private welding class for an hour (the part I missed). I recommend that MakersP make sure the necessary equipment is available prior to the start of a class. Chuck

Great introductory class. The instructor was informative, helpful and patient. He was very knowledgeable and was able to present the topic to the students in a very understandable manner. I enjoyed the class and learned alot.

I thought it was a good class. My first time ever at Makers and a complete novice at TIG welding so I learned a lot and have a much better understanding of the process. The instructor was very patient with all my questions I asked as I tried to whittle out the process in my head. Unless I did not see the other machines I would of liked to see more TIG machines especially if the class was full. I felt I got a good amount of weld practice but that would degrade with one machine and 6 people. I recommend this class. I would take an intermediate class.
