Advanced TIG Welding Workshop (HTW3)
However, this equipment is often not used due to lack of knowledge in how to operate and use it.
This programme is designed at providing the knowledge and skills in the processes of TIG welding and also Plasma cutting and Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding such that the equipment can be utilized safely and efficiently.
Each participant would have a welding station assigned to him for the practical sessions during the course.
The IMTC – UNITOR Welding School has been set up in collaboration with Wilhelmsen Ships Service and the courses are UNITOR approved. The faculty, expert welders and instructors in their own right, have undergone training with Wilhelmsen Ships Service welding specialists, to further enhance their abilities.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will
- Be able to recognize the dangers and observe the relevant safety precautions while performing/ supervising hotwork.
