Swagelok Weld Training

For nearly four decades, Swagelok has offered premium-quality welding tools. Today, our welding training emphasizes the theories and skills associated with gas tungsten arc-based orbital welding (GTAW) with both classroom and hands-on training in a five-day course. Because of the complexity of skills required to consistently achieve good orbital welds, new and even experienced welders must be trained using cutting-edge techniques from qualified instructors. The techniques taught in this course can be applied to any automatic gas tungsten arc welding system.

All classes are taught by experienced instructors who have earned the qualifications of Certified Weld Inspector (CWI) and Certified Weld Educator (CWE).
