WELDING - LEVEL 2 CERTIFICATE

Duration: 3 hours per week for one year
Level: Level 2
Last Updated: 24-03-20

The Level 2 Certificate in Welding is ideal for those looking to further develop their welding skills at a more advanced level, having already achieved two Level 1 Awards in Welding (either MIG, TIG or MMA). Developing and practising the vertical welding of joints, individuals on this course will be required to commit several hours to practising a number of welds, progressing knowledge and skills to Level 2 standard.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Those undertaking this course must complete 14 credits, across two units, chosen from:

  • TIG Stainless Steel
  • Metal Inert Gas Welding
  • Tungsten Inert Gas Welding
  • Tungsten Inert Gas Welding-Aluminium
  • Manual Metal Arc

All sessions are practical workshop sessions, with individuals expected to do small amounts of reading and research, in order to complete the knowledge test at the end of the course.

To successfully pass the course, five practical assignments consisting of welding joints in standard (vertical) positions and one oral knowledge test, for each unit studied, must be passed, with successful completion evidencing an individual’s competence in their chosen welding method.

HOW WILL I BE TAUGHT?

This course is a highly practical course, delivered in our new workshop using state-of-the art equipment. The course content includes the under-pinning knowledge of welding techniques and also covers health and safety. All sessions are practical workshop sessions, although a small amount of reading and research is expected in order to answer the oral questions at the end of the course.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

To successfully pass the course, five practical assignments consisting of welding joints in standard (vertical) positions and one oral knowledge test, for each unit studied, must be passed, with successful completion evidencing an individual’s competence in their chosen welding method.

WHAT CAN I DO NEXT?

Completion of the course provides progression opportunities onto additional qualifications at Preston’s College, including Coded Welding.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW?

To successfully pass the course, five practical assignments consisting of welding joints in standard (vertical) positions and one oral knowledge test, for each unit studied, must be passed, with successful completion evidencing an individual’s competence in their chosen welding method.

All learners studying on the Level 2 Certificate in Welding are required to wear appropriate PPE at all times, including steel toe cap boots and flame retardant overalls. Costs will vary but both of these items will need to be purchased and brought to the first class.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

This course is suitable for those who have already achieved at least two Level 1 Awards in Welding (from MIG, TIG or MMA).
