This Level 2 course in MMA Welding focusses on the MMA welding process using flux coated rods to produce a range of joints in the vertical position, to be inspected via destructive testing.

Covering the basics of setting up, maintaining your equipment to tacking, welding various joint configurations and positions, you will develop skills, knowledge and confidence to tackle basic fabrication requirements whether at home or in the workplace.

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements however previous experience in welding is preferable. Levels can be assessed and assigned during the first few weeks of the course, depending on the experience and requirements of the applicant.

Course Activities

The course requires the completion of 5 welded test pieces in the chosen process, and an oral examination. The assessment joints will be worked through over the duration of the course and typically include Lap, Corner, Tee and Butt, in the PA, PB and PF positions. The final outcome is an oral examination covering various aspects of welding including Health & Safety, and process specific questions on machinery, technique and common defects.

There are a total of 6 outcomes which make up the qualification:

  • 5 practical (83%)

  • 1 theoretical (17%)

Theory material will be provided for home reading if so desired, but the content required to pass the theoretical aspect of the course will be delivered during the workshop sessions.

Industry Links

Our Engineering department has many local links to industry employers, including EDF Energy, who have used this course to upskill their employees for ongoing or changing requirements in the workplace.

Progression Opportunities

Upon completion of this course, you could become a supervisor or metal fabrication workshop manager. You could also work in welding inspection, non-destructive testing and quality control.

With commercial diver training, you could specialise in underwater welding, for example in oil, gas and marine engineering.
