About the course

Welding is great fun and very useful once you have the skills you can fix and repair many steel structures.  Welding skills are sought after in remote communities, the Northern Territory weather is pretty tough on steel so if you can weld properly you will be busy.  This course is only delivered in remote Indigenous communities.  

This course is good for people living in remote communities and who need to be able to fix and repair metal or steel structures.  The welding is non - trade and can be used for fixing gates, fences, cattle yards or other metal structures where the services of a trade person is not required.  Train Safe NT can come to you and complete a Nationally accredited training course at your cattle station or Aboriginal community.  Complete our booking inquiry form or give us a call to discuss your requirements.
