Vocational course - welder

Why a welding course?

In today's market situation, skilled workers are a valuable asset to an employer. those with a welding qualification can therefore count on attractive wages and secure employment. 

Welder's licences allow you to carry out a range of metal cutting and welding work. They enable a wide range of welding work to be carried out, such as gas cutting and plasma welding. Trainees with a welding qualification can operate and maintain equipment such as oxy-acetylene torches or plasma welders. In addition, a person with a welding qualification and relevant on-the-job experience can additionally provide on-the-job training for those with previous experience. 

It is therefore worth considering investing in a welding course for yourself or your employees. In addition to an attractive income, the experience gained can make it easier for the rest of the employees in your company to renew their welder's permits. Training at ERGON will give everyone the necessary experience to work with tools such as oxy-acetylene or plasma torches in a safe and efficient manner. 

Who can take a welding course? 

Those wishing to improve their professional competence by taking part in a welding course organised by ERGON do not have to meet any special conditions. Only a few basic rules apply to them: 

  • Completed 18 years of age, 
  • At least primary education, 
  • No medical contraindications to work as a welder. 

As you can see, you don't need any previous experience or special skills to learn how to carry out welding work safely.

Welder's licences are not unlimited in duration. They have a short validity, having to be renewed every 2 years. This is due to the nature of the welder's work and the fact that mistakes made during welding work can lead to serious accidents. It is also worth remembering that the licence loses its value if the holder has not carried out welding work for the last 6 months. 

What does a welder course look like? 

Theoretical part Practical part Final examination 
In the theoretical part, our trainers provide the trainees with information on the safe operation of welding machines and torches, including equipment such as oxy-acetylene and plasma torches. The information provided in this part of the training includes, among other things: how to set up a torch for cutting metal, gas torch temperature, cutting with an oxy-acetylene torch, gas welding cylinders, their types and design, health and safety of the welder, starting and leaving the welding station, gas welding methods. Plasma cutting machines Cutting of metal sheets  In the practical part, the trainees practise the skills and knowledge acquired in the theoretical part. Here they have the opportunity to carry out a range of welding work under the supervision of our trainees. As part of the price of each training course, ERGON provides access to specialised equipment, suitably prepared for the needs of those just learning to carry out welding work.  The final exam is taken before a commission appointed by the Office of Technical Inspection and, like the training itself, consists of two parts, a theoretical and a practical exam. In the theoretical part, trainees pass a written examination consisting of open and closed questions. The theoretical part of the exam is based on open and closed questions. The practical part of the exam is based on performing welding tasks in front of a jury and on operating and maintaining welding torches and machines. A positive result in both parts of the exam entitles the trainee to obtain the qualification required to work as a welder. 

The length of a welding course depends on many factors, but above all on the experience level of the trainees. Depending on whether someone has done welding work before and whether they have a previous licence, the course can last from a few days to even a few hours. For those just starting out in welding work, ERGON has prepared a comprehensive course that teaches everyone everything they need to work as a welder from scratch. For those just looking to renew their previous qualifications, our company can offer express courses lasting just one working day. The focus is on refreshing the trainee's previous knowledge, and the course ends with an exam taken on the same day. 

Most training courses are held at our company headquarters located in Warsaw. However, ERGON has branches and training centres throughout Poland, where courses are also held. In addition, in the case of individual clients, our trainers are able to travel to the client's company and carry out training for a welder at the client's company. 

How much is the price per course? 

Anyone wishing to learn how to operate equipment such as oxy-acetylene or plasma torches is encouraged to take part in an open welder course organised by ERGON. As with other open training courses, this course is also open to anyone wishing to broaden their professional competence. Open training courses are organised on a regular basis, specific dates and prices can be found in the calendar on our company's website.
