Our Welding Courses

Exploring Welding Techniques

In addition to offering a comprehensive array of courses, ITAFORMA delves deep into various welding techniques, equipping students with versatile skills essential for success in the welding industry.

Diving into Welding Techniques:

Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW):

Also known as electrode welding, SMAW involves the use of a consumable electrode coated in flux to create an electric arc between the electrode and the workpiece. This process is widely used for its simplicity and versatility, making it suitable for a broad range of applications in diverse industries.

Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW/MIG) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW/TIG)

MIG welding utilizes a continuous wire electrode and a shielding gas to protect the weld from atmospheric contamination, while TIG welding uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode and a separate filler material. Both techniques offer exceptional precision and control, making them ideal for intricate welding tasks and applications requiring superior aesthetic appeal.

Continuous Wire Welding

Also known as wire feed welding, this technique involves feeding a continuous wire electrode through a welding gun, which melts and fuses with the base metal to form a weld. Continuous wire welding, often used in conjunction with inert gases, offers high efficiency and deposition rates, making it suitable for high-volume welding operations.

Other Techniques

ITAFORMA also covers specialized techniques such as flux-cored arc welding (FCAW), submerged arc welding (SAW), and plasma arc welding (PAW), providing students with a comprehensive understanding of various welding methods and their applications in different industries.

We have formed
over 2000 welders

What do you need to attend a welding course?

What are the requirements?

If you reside in a European country and plan to attend a training course in Italy, you usually do not need a VISA, as most European countries are part of the Schengen area, where visas are not required for short stays.

However, if you reside outside of Europe, you may need a VISA to enter in Europe, in particular in Italy for attend a training course. In that case, you will need to apply for a visa at the Italian embassy.

To participate in our welding course, speaking languages fluently or possessing a language proficiency certificate is not required because our course is 99% practical. You'll spend the entire day welding alongside our instructors. The course and license exam are entirely practical, reflecting the welding job's nature.

No educational certificates are needed to enroll. 

The minimum age for the welding course is 16 years old. 

When does the Welding Course take place?

You can attend our welding courses in our Italian base, a real life engineering workshop.

Do not worry if you are not from the area, we will provide  you with FREE accommodation, airport shuttle service and boarding for the duration of the course. The course lasts about one month and the number of hours per lessons depends on which type of welding you choose, from a minimum of 80 hours, up to 240 hours for the most comprehensive course. 

When you finish the welding course, we will organize for you to take the final welding exam to receive the International Welding License.


 International Welding License

You can attend our welding courses in our Italian base, a real life engineering workshop.

At the end of the course, a commission of examiners will submit the welding product created during the final skill test exam to the breaking test with a press or a series of radiographs will be performed on the piece, which would detect the presence of defects on the welds made.

In these types of exams, there are no chances of personal recommendations that will assist in the end result, it will only be through the preparation you will acquire during the course that will allow you to pass the test and receive the International Welding License.

Our school provides the trainee with the necessary equipment such as PPE (personal protection equipment), overalls, safety shoes, gloves, glasses, mask and apron.
