Hi I am looking to train to be a welder and need some recommendations on training providers and courses to take. I am completely new to welding so have no experience or qualifications in it. There are no apprenticeships in my area. I am from Liverpool thanks.

Look at the ECITB they are looking for apprentice welder fabricators.

I learned from a book. My first welds were with an old tig machine, which I think is the easiest process- to make a GOOD weld. Anyone can weld with MIG- point and shoot, but it's actually not that easy to ensure you have a good weld with all the sparking, spatter, and fast movement required. Tig is nice and calm- you move at your own speed.

That said, I think a class is the best, but my limited time had me learning myself.
