Practical MIG Welding

Master the most essential technique in motorsport fabrication.

MIG welding is an essential welding technique that you’ll need to learn if you want to get involved in the world of motorsport fabrication. When done right, the MIG process produces strong, tidy welds in a short timeframe. 

Learn the theory, AND the practical.

The ETS Fab Practical MIG Welding course will teach you everything you need to know about MIG welding and more — it’s going to give you a complete understanding of the theory behind the process, as well as the practical skills you’ll need to master if you want to weld like a pro.

Start from Zero

It doesn't matter whether you've never picked up the MIG torch, or whether you're on your way to turning fabrication into a career. This course starts at the fundamental knowledge you need to know before you pick up the torch. From there it dives into the techniques and skills picked up from 20 years in the trade. 

 

What you will learn
  • How a MIG Welder works
  • Material specific welding techniques
  • ETS 6-Step process for ANY job
  • How to configure MIG Welder settings
  • How to test for strength and penetration
  • The practical technique of MIG Welding

Common Questions

Can I watch the course whenever suits me?

You can access your course material via our website, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You can watch it as many times as you like.

Who is this course NOT for?

If you're looking for a course that will teach you everything a 3 year apprenticeship will, this isn't it. It will be a good starting point, and provide a lot of value for someone learning the MIG process, but it doesn't completely replace an apprenticeship or formal training. However, it will give you a headstart into the industry, and give you some experience to then jump into a career head first.

Do I get a certificate after the course?

Yes, we provide a digital certificate of completion with every course you complete. This is great for the workshop wall or CV.

What tools do I need for this course?

At a minimum, a MIG Welder, and various clamps and measuring equipment. We outline all the common tools and uses in the course. If you find that the investment in tools is too much after buying the course, Send us an email and we will refund you.

What skill level is this course aimed at?

This course starts right at the beginning making it ideal for beginners. It also provides great information at a more intermediate level for those who have already had some experience in MIG Welding.
