Welding skills for novice hobbyists to experienced tradespersons

NAIT's part-time welding courses are designed to either help you explore a potential new career, learn a new skill that can be used to craft art and tools or enhance your existing skills and knowledge.

Beginner introductory courses will give you the opportunity to practice cutting and welding while our advanced courses will help you prepare for B Pressure or Visual Welding exams.

You may also be interested in welding as a hobby or craftsman skill. We provide hands-on training suitable for novices, artists, and hobbyists, as well as those developing their skills for the welding trade.

A wallet card Welding Fundamentals Certificate is available for students who complete any three of the following courses: WELD110, WELD112, WELD115, and WELD152.
