Video shows Intro to MIG Workshop shot by Chris Davis

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.

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.


Gmaw Metal Arc 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, semi-automatic, 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.  

gtaw gas tungsten 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.  

Wtbp Welding technology & blueprint reading - 

The Blueprint Reading and WTBP Welding Technology class covers basic shop math and measurement skills. The class will explain how to read, use, and make blueprints. We will also discuss various welds, weld joints, and weld symbols and explain advanced shop math and measurement skills.

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.
