Expand your DIY expertise with the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center’s (SVHEC) “At Home Welding” class. This six-week course provides instruction on safety and basic welding processes including stick, MIG, and TIG welding, and cutting with plasma and oxy-fuel.

“This non-credential, hands-on training class is perfect for individuals in the community who want to learn a little bit more about welding for their personal use,” said Scarlett Brandon, program/marketing coordinator for Welding@SVHEC.

Developed with the recreational or do-it-yourselfer in mind, no previous welding experience is needed to enroll in the “At Home Welding” course. Classes will meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:00pm to 9:00pm, and will be taught by certified Welding@SVHEC instructors. Each participant will have an opportunity to complete a project in class or to bring in a personal project from home.

“At Home Welding” begins Tuesday, April 2nd, and costs $500.00 per person. Individuals who first complete the “Explore Welding” workshop on March 15th will receive a 10% discount on the registration fee.
