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.
