weld verb. join together (metal pieces or parts) by heating the surfaces to the point of melting using a blowtorch, electric arc, or other means, and uniting them by pressing, hammering, etc.

Learn a timeless skill

You’ve definitely used and seen things that were put together with welding. This industry is found all over the world and can be applied from construction to art, making it extremely versatile. Besides joining pieces of metal together, welding requires an array of abilities and techniques in order to do it correctly. From theory to practice, our goal is to provide you with the necessary skill set to be an efficient and reliable welder.

the Training

The Detroit Training Center has created a 160 hour training program to prepare students with the skills necessary to be eligible to use welding equipment in industries. Students will have both lectured styled teachings coupled with hands on training. This program will provide students with the proper training and certifications to operate equipment related to welding. Students will learn job safety and safety requirements per American Welding Society (AWS) welder qualifications.

Smaw SHIELDED metal arc welding basic -

Shielded Metal Arc Welding, otherwise known as manual metal arc welding or flux shielded arc welding, is a process that uses a flux-coated electrode to form the weld. As electricity passes through the electrode, the flux forms a gas, which shields the electric arc in the space between the electrode and the metal being welded, preventing contamination from atmospheric gasses in the weld. 

Torch Cutting

The focus of this course will be on the tip of a cutting torch that is based on the flame characteristics of the fuel gas used, as well as material cutting. Torch cutting tips come in two styles, one piece, and two-piece. Students will learn an introduction to torch cutting in this course.

Torch Cutting Advanced Class

The focus of this course will be on the tip of a cutting torch that is based on the flame characteristics of the fuel gas used, as well as material cutting. Torch cutting tips come in two styles, one piece, and two-piece. Students will learn both in this course.

Intro to MIG Welding

The gas metal arc welding (GMAW / “MIG”) process utilizes an electric arc established between a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece. GMAW can be implemented as a manual, semiautomatic, or automatic process, and the flexibility offered by the various process variations is advantageous in many applications. GMAW provides a considerable increase in weld metal deposition rates compared to GTAW or SMAW, and when implemented as a semi-automatic process, less welder skill is typically required.

Intro to ARC Welding

The gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) process is a very versatile, all-position welding process that is widely used to join Ni-/Co-base alloys. In GTAW, the heat for welding is generated from an electric arc established between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and the workpiece. GTAW can be performed manually or adapted to automatic equipment and can be used in production as well as repair welding situations. It is a process that offers precise control of welding heat and is therefore routinely used for welding thin base metal and depositing root passes of thicker section welds.
