Welding Course - Varren Maritime Academy

Welding Technology

The welding programs at Varren Maritime Academy Foundation (VMAF) are designed to meet the expanding needs of industries that utilize welding. The Institute is equipped with excellent infrastructure along with the state-of-the-art Welding Lab to expose students to various courses in welding technologies. VMA adopts industry ready technologies with a view to bridge the gap between the academics and the industry.

Why choose this

In the era of rapid industrialization, particularly in the engineering field, there is a high requirement of specialised courses. The courses offered by VMA in welding and other technologies that are Goal oriented towards fulfilling the requirements of the industry by providing skilled manpower. 

Welding is a widely used skill, offering careers in fabrication and construction industries as well as for self-employment in small scale enterprises Most of the construction and infrastructure projects implemented today make use of different welding technologies in various applications A few of the welding technologies VMA Provides under one roof which are widely used in the industry are mentioned below:


Also known as Tungsten Inert Gas welding (TIG), it is an art welding process that normally uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode, with the help of a Shielding Gas (ARGON, HELIUM, NITROGEN) and a filler metal. The process can be used to weld metals such as Aluminium, magnesium, Copper, Stainless Steel, Nickel, Inconel, Carbon Steels, Jethethe and their alloys. The process is widely used in Aircraft industries to join thin gauge metals. It provides the operator with greater control over the weld to achieve stronger, higher quality welds.


The process is also known as Metal Inert Gas Welding (MIG) or Metal Active Gas Welding (MAG), this process uses bare electrode as a consumable with an envelope of shielding gas (Carbon Dioxide, Argon and Helium). The process is suitable for welding both thin and thick gauge materials. The process is suitable to weld metals like Carbon and Alloy steels, Aluminium alloys, Stainless Steel, Copper and Nickel alloys etc. GMAW is the fastest welding process which is employed in robotic, automatic and semi-automatic welding processes for having stronger and quality welds. It is extensively used in manufacturing of pressure vessels, automobiles and ship building industries.


The Manual Metal Arc Welding Course held as per WPS (Welding Procedure specification) and can set-up and prepare for operations interpreting the right information from the WPS, obtaining the right consumables and raw materials, etc. and the candidate must know how to use the same in a safe manner following practices that ensure safety for self, others and the work environment and assess weld quality through visual inspection.
Openness to learning, ability to set up and organize own work and determine and solve issues within the course of operating. Understanding the requirement to want initiative and manage self and work to reinforce efficiency and effectiveness
