You may wish to train to a standard of practical proficiency in welding. The course is suitable for a wide range of candidates, for example the self employed, adults wishing to pursue specific units and young people who are new to the industry.
This Fabrication and Welding course is for you, if you are an apprentice, technician, craftsmen or seeking entry in to the industry.
Advanced Diploma VRQ is made up of nine units; two units are common core which are assessed by an external exam, and seven units are skills-specific to fabrication and welding, which include three welding processes, sheet and plate work and pattern development. These will be assessed on programme through short answer question assessments.
This course will help you to develop the knowledge and skills required to work at the higher end of the welding jobs market, for example in coded welding procedures. As part of your study programme you will be given the opportunity to take up a work experience placement in the engineering industry with one of our employer partners.
An Apprenticeship offers the combined benefits of work experience and supported academic learning at college. Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining qualifications and workplace experience.
You will be employed in industry, earning a wage whilst gaining the skills and qualifications employers need and value. You must have an employer who will support you through your Apprenticeship and give you time off work to attend college.
The units you will complete include: > Working in Engineering > Principles of Engineering Technology > Principles of Fabrication and Welding Techniques > Welding by Manual Metal Arc Processes > Fabricating Sheet Metal Work You will be continually assessed for competency throughout the course and will complete hour-long written exams for each unit. You will also be expected to sit two online City & Guilds exams that cover the mandatory units.
This course aims to provide a practical training, knowledge and understanding of fabrication and welding. It describes the various processes used to join metal items by heating the areas to be joined to a molten state and fusing them together.
As an Apprentice you really do get the best of both worlds; you will earn a salary and gain real experience in the workplace with your employer as well as working towards a nationally recognised NVQ and other qualifications. Apprenticeships are suitable for well-motivated people who are focussed and know which career path they want to follow.
The Level 1 course is designed to provide the learner with a sound grounding in welding studies and is intended for those who need to obtain a basic skill in fabrication and welding. The assessment includes five mandatory practical tests and an oral test which covers the knowledge requirements for each programme of study.
If you can work accurately with your hands and you've got good concentration levels, this course be an ideal job for you. Welders cut, shape and join sections of metal in a wide range of industries, such as construction and engineering, transport, aerospace, and offshore oil and gas.
This course consists of two core units and four specialist units.
This course gives you the opportunity to build industry standard skills in fabrication and welding. On this course you will develop a good understanding of the practices and processes used in fabrication and welding.
This Apprenticeship will train you in the practical skills needed to produce components from sheet metal, fabricating and welding. As an Apprentice, you'll be earning while you learn.
The course is held in a well resourced welding and manufacturing centre with modern equipment and is intended to assist students or trainees to reach a standard of practical proficiency in welding and fabrication. It is suitable for a wide range of students, for example: the self-employed, adults, young people who are new entrants to the industry.
If you are a highly-motivated individual with a passion for technology and employed in the fabrication and welding aspect of the engineering industry then this is the course for you. This programme will help you to achieve high level skills in purpose-built workshops at College while gaining on-the-job experience with an employer.
Who is the course for? This qualification is suitable for workers looking to achieve trained operator/semi-skilled status in fabrication and welding engineering. It is also aimed at learners looking to progress in to the engineering and welding industries.
The course provides a mixture of practical work in the College's fabrication workshop together with associated classroom work to provide the theoretical knowledge needed to back up the practical element of the course. Throughout the course you will learn the basics of fabrication and welding as a lead to a possible apprenticeship or employment.
In this course students will study a number of units including: Manual Welding, Welding machine settings and operating, Sheet Metal Working, Plate Working and Structural Steelwork. Fabrication is the manufacture of items and structures from metals.
This course will help you develop skills and understanding in the area of Metalwork using specific techniques and processes within a real working environment. This course is ideal if you are new to this area and want to explore the subject starting from the basics.
