I went into the course without any knowledge of how to weld and I left Allied Welding confident that I could set up a machine and start welding on my own. I liked that we were given plenty of time and consumables to practice with and David is generous in his 1 to 1 time with you. He is also very clear and succinct in his teaching style and I learnt a lot, thank you.

Very Easy to book and the course content was discussed over the phone making it clear what was available.

Went with no experience and struggled at the start. But with excellent tuition I was doing great welds by the end of the day.

This course was easy to book. The day was nicely paced and gave me the confidence to use the equipment. When I made mistakes the instructor gave positive feedback on how to improve. I had a great day and hope to see courses for other types of welding soon. I enjoyed myself, and it gave me the confidence to have a go.
What could we improve on? perhaps taster days for other types of welding, TIG OXY Etc.
Easy to book this course online. Thanks for a great day it was perfect for me, It was hands on and gave me a taste of what welding is about. The day was good fun. Great hosting you took care of everything. Tank you
