“My 2 sons have recently completed the Welding Short Course at Ringwood Training. They could not speak more highly about it.  They were able to learn so much in the 4 weeks. The facility and equipment they got to use was of a really high quality and the teaching supportive and informative. Well worth it. Would recommend Ringwood Training to anyone. Thank you all so much.”


“For anyone wanting an excellent value-for-money short welding course, look no further than Ringwood Training! 


“As a retired and somewhat pedantic 65 year old very ‘hands-on’ Mechanical Engineer that has been welding since I was 13 (Stick and Oxy-Acetylene), I had long promised myself an upgrade to TIG for some stainless and aluminium hobby work, with an introductory course to start me off.  Having done an initial TIG course in late 2021 somewhat interrupted by Covid lockdowns due to no fault of RT’s, I recently did the 4 week course again and considered it superb.  The Ringwood facility is exceptionally well equipped (and the total envy of any serious hobby metalworker), and the evening course welding instructor Shane was fabulous.  In fact, given that mastering a new process is a combination of a little bit of carefully targeted tuition and a LOT of practice, I have just booked in to do another two four-week courses mid-year to force concentrated practice and hone my skills.  And on top of the actual course, the administration is super responsive and really switched on.
Highly recommended”


Just want to say a huge thank you to Shane Pemberton for his excellent guidance during the course. I gained a huge amount of knowledge, coming from a person that’s never touched a welding machine before, I’m now on my way to enjoying creating lots of  garden art . Thanks Shane
