This also changes how you move through the MIG Welding 101 course. Now, you will need to pass a quiz before moving forward to the next section of video lessons. You will receive instant feedback on whether you have passed or failed the quiz. Also, you will be sent an e-mail with your results.

We hope you enjoy the new interactivity now available in our video courses!
