MMAW (Electric Arc / Stick Welding) NU0017 
Generally known as stick or arc welding. Arc welding is the most basic of all welding types, is easy to master in a home welding situation. Can be used for manufacturing, construction and repairs, very much well suited for heavy metal size 4 millimetres upwards. 

GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding) NU0032
More commonly called MIG welding this welding type is the most widely used and perhaps the most easily mastered type of welding for industry and home use. The GMAW process is suitable for fusing mild steel, stainless-steel as well as aluminium.

GTAW (Tungsten Inert Gas) NU0033
TIG welding is comparable to oxy acetylene gas welding and needs a lot more expertise from the operator. Employed for carrying out high-quality work when a superior standard of finish is needed without making use of excessive clean up by sanding or grinding.
