Plasma Education

Proper training on the latest cutting technologies is critical for today's students who need to know more than just oxyfuel cutting when they graduate. At the same time, experienced welders from all industries can benefit by expanding their plasma cutting knowledge.

PlasmaEducation.com is a resource for welding instructors and anyone else who needs to teach people how to cut, gouge, and bevel with plasma. It includes information on Plasma Cutting Technology: Theory and Practice™, the only comprehensive plasma cutting curriculum available today, as well as information on Hypertherm produced training modules, reference articles and resources for obtaining grants.
