This course will consist of a presentation covering the DATA standards followed by practical experience in MIG (Manual Inert Gas), MMA (Manual Metal Arc) and TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding.  Delegates will practise formal jointing techniques  and fabricate a flower sculpture using processes of their own selection.

Why don't you get electrocuted when arc welding?
Electricity takes the path of least resistance.....metal is a lot more conductive than the human body, so it chooses that route and spares the worker......when used properly.
However like anything, if misused, it can be dangerous......just dont lick the electrodes or stand in a pool of water and you should be fine.
