Welding Award Level 2
This award provides the basic skills required for people hoping to start a career in Welding, but is also appropriate for those wishing to improve their welding skills for work or hobby interests. The skills required are considerably greater than those required for the Level 1 qualification.
At Level 2 you can choose to specialise in one of the following processes: MIG, TIG, MMA or Oxy-Acetylene. Following a period of training to enable you to become competent in the chosen discipline, five practical tests will be completed.
An example of typical course tests would be: Single Vee Butt Joint in the flat position, Lap Fillet Joint in the vertical up position, Tee Fillet Joint in the vertical up position, Single Vee Butt Joint in the vertical up position, Tube to Plate in the horizontal/vertical position and Health & Safety Knowledge Questions.
