Welding

welding

This often overlooked trade is, these days, a highly specialised and very well remunerated discipline. No longer the ‘poor man’ amongst the trades, welding is vital to almost every key industrial and manufacturing sector in our economy. There is a significant skills shortage in welding and as a trained welding and fabrication engineer your skills could take you all over the world – whether your preference is to be employed or self-employed, the opportunities are considerable.

The course starts with the Weldability-Sif Foundation programme and then follows the TWI progression structure through levels 2 and 3 using EAL certificated programmes, together with options for NVQ work-based accreditation and European Code test certification.

The objective is for you to become a fully qualified welder allowing you to work almost anywhere in the engineering industry, regardless of your current level of ability or experience. Together with the EAL qualifications and the first code test you will obtain, it will equip you for the real world demands that you will face as a welder with skill and confidence.

Our course covers all you need to become a domestic plumbing and heating engineer and covers the syllabus of City & Guilds 6189-11 qualification as well as the BPEC Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations. Even with little or no prior knowledge, this course will allow you to absorb the knowledge and skills you need to succeed and will build speedily and steadily to the point where you are ready to pass your assessments.

The very best learning experience reflects a blended approach and combines book-based underpinning theory supported by multimedia interactive content and e-learning supported by PC based 3D simulations and intensive practical workshops. Our multiple certification programme will prepare you with all the essential skills required to either get a job or to be able to work legally on a self-employed basis. Many of our students are adult career changers and our courses are designed to allow study to sit alongside other work and family commitments. There is no better way to gain the trades skills the country needs and remember, this programme would allow a natural progression path into other related disciplines, such as renewable energy, gas engineering or, of course, to progress to the 6189 qualification at Level 3.

Given the Government’s commitment of achieving UK & EU renewable energy targets and that there is a nationwide ‘green skills’ shortage across the country, qualifying as a renewable energy engineer could well provide you with ‘skills for life’.

The aim of this course is for you to become a Domestic Renewable Energy Engineer. The first stage of our programme provides a thorough grounding in plumbing principles and technologies such that on successful completion of Stage 1 you would be able lawfully and safely to take on work as a qualified domestic plumbing and heating engineer.

Progressing on the second stage would see you acquire eight further skills and qualifications, including BPEC’s Part P Defined Scope electrical qualification as well as awards in; Domestic Hot Water, Environmental Technology Systems, the Installation and Maintenance of Solar Hot Water Systems, the Installation and Maintenance of Heat Pumps, the Installation and Maintenance of Water Harvesting and Re-use systems as well as certification in Underfloor Heating. All in all, it would prepare you for the considerable challenges and opportunities that a career in renewable energy provides. Put simply, there is no finer renewables training in the UK for adult career changers and others looking to break into the industry.
