Summer Continuing Education Welding Class:

MIG welding uses an electric arc to melt a wire electrode and fuse it with the base metal. This type of welding is relatively easy to learn since there is not much smoke or fumes. MIG welding is great for beginners and is perfect for making projects at home such as bar-b-que grills, metal art pieces and repairing metal yard furniture. Safety equipment is provided. Please wear blue jeans and closed toe, work boot style shoes.
