Are you driven, eager, and willing to weld?

Learn how by taking Welding GMAW at Danville Community College and you could work at Amthor International!


We are pleased to announce a partnership with Danville Community College to offer a non-credit Gas Metal Arc Fillet Welding course. This course will train students on the common types of welds used at Amthor International and could lead to employment upon completion of the class.

The Train2Work course is located at the DCC main campus in the new Welding Facility. The space features all-new welding equipment, in addition to a new welding fabrication area where students can obtain hands-on experience with the process. The course lasts for 8 weeks and meets two nights a week for 3 hours. Students are encouraged not to miss any classes because of the fast pace of the training and the shortened length of the course. Seats for the class are limited to 16 students.

Your future awaits!
Take the Welding GMAW course!
Classes begin January 7th!

The Amthor International Train2Work course teaches Welding Gas Metal Arc Fillet Welding (Welding GMAW). This training course introduces semi-automatic welding processes with emphasis on practical applications. It includes the study of filler wires, fluxes, and gases. At the end of the course, the participants should be able to:

  • know the differences between the most common welding technologies and the GMAW(MIG) welding process
  • learn the different shielding gases and the common types of wire and their costs
  • identify the most important parts of a MIG/MAG welding machine
  • know how to change the machine parameters and the working and consumable parts of the machine
  • make use of the most common edge preparations and the different weld joint designs
  • know how to weld mild steel with different techniques, positions and joints
  • identify welding defects and know how to correct them
  • make use of different grinding machines
  • know and use the proper safety procedures and equipment

To gain additional skills outside of the one course Amthor International Train2Work/ GMAW training course, students can enroll in the Welding Program (Certificate Program) offered through DCC.
