World-class tailored facilities, expert instructors and some of the most in-demand, internationally-recognised welding qualifications are just some of the reasons AIS is becoming number one choice for welding.

Coded welding courses, from basic level up to the highest international industry standards and in all processes including Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG), Manual Metal Arc (MMA) Metal Active and Metal Insert Gas (MIG/MAG) are now being delivered in state-of-the-art welding bays and workshop areas in a brand new facility at AIS.

AIS has also become the only place in the UK to have a Zurich-accredited welding surveyor onsite to witness all coded tests, allowing welding training and testing together in one location.

AIS is also delivering underwater welding training from Speciality Welds’ Huddersfield site – a highly-prized skill used in the marine and offshore sector and one which people travel from all over the world to acquire.

Paul Stonebanks, managing director of AIS Group said:

“Welding skills are much in-demand and there are huge skills shortages across sectors like manufacturing. Coded welders in particular are highly prized by employers because the ‘coding’ or testing provides assurance that the person can perform at that level.

“Using Speciality Welds’ expertise we’ve created a world-class welding-training and coding offer where people get expert tuition and assessment services together in one place, as well as providing high-quality welding products. We can also help companies navigate through directives such as European Standard

EN1090 to ensure they comply with all the legislation around the fabrication and assembly of steel and aluminium structures – something many businesses are currently unsure of.”
