This course has been developed in conjunction with industry experts and the units studied are a step up from the ABC Level 2 Certificate. The overall aim of the qualification is to raise a student’s skill level and enhance their underpinning knowledge to promote progression from basic welding and fabrication skills to a more highly developed understanding of equipment functions and how materials behave when subjected to the welding process. The course will educate the student to correctly observe the safe procedures that are paramount in the welding and fabrication industry.

You can expect to study:

  • Materials, Science and Calculations for Fabrication and Welding Practice – this unit is mandatory and is externally assessed
  • Manual Metal-Arc Welding - optional unit
  • Metal-Arc Gas Shielded Welding - optional unit
  • Tungsten-Arc Gas Shielded (all Vertical) Welding - optional unit
  • Fabrication Processes – Plate - optional unit
  • Fabrication Processes - Sheet Metal - optional unit

Students choose three from the five optional units. The qualification includes the latest fabrication and welding techniques, materials, processes and practices, and units are assessed in line with industry demands, which include updated rigorous practical assessments and online multiple-choice exams.

This course has been developed in conjunction with industry experts and will suit students who are just starting out and are interested in fabrication and welding in engineering as a career. The overall aim is to provide both experience and knowledge in a broad range of competencies to enable safe progression into the workplace and enhance employment prospects. Successful students who gain the Level 1 qualification can progress to study further Level 2 Engineering courses.

You can expect to study:

  • Health and Safety in an Industrial Environment - in this unit students will learn about safe working practices, including working with hand tools and powered machinery, emergency procedures, manual handling and current safety signage. Current legislation will be covered
  • Welding Processes (Manual Metal-Arc and Metal Active Gas) - in this unit students will be taught the safe working practices and the correct procedures required when carrying out manual metal-arc and metal active gas welding activities. Students will also be required to produce a welded joint
  • Fabrication Processes (Sheet Metal and Plate) - in this unit students will study the methods of marking out, cutting and forming and the joining of materials. Working to tolerances as shown on engineering drawings is an integral part of this unit and safety requirements when carrying out fabrication practice, will also be covered
  • Engineering Drawing - in this unit students will use various drawing instruments and/or computer-aided design (CAD) systems to produce engineering drawings that will meet current industry standards

This course has been developed in conjunction with industry experts and is suitable for a wide range of students, for example the self-employed, adults wishing to specialise by pursuing single units, and young people who are thinking of careers within engineering. The units studied are a development from the ABC Level 1 Certificate and act as a progression to the ABC Level 3 Certificate and Diploma in Fabrication and Welding Practice. The qualification includes the latest fabrication and welding techniques, materials, processes and practices, and units are assessed in line with industry demands, which include updated rigorous practical assessments and online multiple-choice exams.

You can expect to study some of these topics:

  • Materials, Science and Calculations for Fabrication and Welding Practice
  • Manual Metal-Arc Welding
  • Metal-Arc Gas Shielded Welding
  • Tungsten-Arc Gas Shielded Welding
  • Fabrication Processes – Plate
  • Fabrication Processes - Sheet Metal
  • Engineering Drawing Using Manual and CAD Techniques

The course is designed to give students a short, sharp and focused hands-on experience of welding and/or fabrication processes.
