Entry Level Class (No prerequisite required) in Welding
Member Price: $420.00
TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) or GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) is the type of welding commonly used for delicate work and non-ferrous metals. It uses an AC/DC power source, a non-consumable tungsten electrode, and inert gas to form an arc and create a weld. Using cold-rolled steel, this course starts with a series of small exercises and progresses into a challenging technical project, giving students a foundation in basic metallurgy, preparation, joints, technique, and safety.
This class is a prerequisite for the CREATE Program, a way for students to use our studio space, tools, and equipment to work on individual projects.
