Education Recommendation

Postby JHenze646 » Mon Nov 20, 2017 7:37 am

I would like to get some instruction for welding which is a hobby for me.
I have talked to a few local schools and makerspaces and the basic offerings for non-career classes is more supevised practice than anything else. I am not sure what I should be looking for or what questions I should be asking. I would like to learn about how to select materials, designing joints, layout of projects, etc.
I know I could definitely benefit from the supervised practice but classes are expensive in my area right now(PGH) and I want to ensure I spend the money on what I really want to learn.
What kind of instruction should I be asking for? As this is a hobby, is there anything thing that I should avoid?

I'll copy this topic to "General Shop Talk". It gets more views than the last item on the page...
