Training of Welders

PPEA offers welding training in several different modules to suit the various requirements of individual welders and their employers.  The two principal target groups are:

(1) individuals wishing to pursue a career in welding; or
(2) practising welders who wish to polish their skills for a specific certification.
The duration of the course is determined by the trainee’s skill level upon entry into the course.


Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) or TIG Welding

Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), also known as Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Welding, is a welding process that involves striking an arc between a tungsten electrode (with no consumable) and the weld pool. The process involves the use of shielding gas and no application of pressure.

Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) or Stick Welding

Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), also known as Stick Welding, is one of the most common welding processes, especially popular with outdoor welders as it is not affected by wind. The process involves striking an arc between a metal electrode and the weld pool.

Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) or MIG/MAG Welding

Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) is sometimes referred to by its subtypes: Metal Inert Gas (MIG) Welding or Metal Active Gas (MAG) Welding. The process can be automatic or semi-automatic and involves striking an arc between a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece. A shielding gas feeds through the welding gun, shielding the weld from contaminants in the air.
