Thanks for all of the suggestions, I am going from a zero base and will be
sure to let the instructor know that I need to learn sheet metal, but I am
interested in some of the larger steel projects.  I will make the bracket,
and probably a cart as well.

I have a Weld-Pak 100, but already know that it is too weak to do much,
will upgrade after I have a little time under my belt.

Here is the class description

An overview of the basic welding processes, including oxy-fuel welding and
cutting, shielded metal arc (SMAW), gas metal arc (GMAW), and gas tungsten
arc welding (GTAW). Set up machines and complete welds and cutting
operations involving SMAW, OXY-FUEL, GMAW, GTAW, and resistance spot
welding; practice basic shop safety; identify types of electrodes used in
welding processes; define various welding and cutting standards; and
demonstrate proper joint preparation techniques.

I'm really looking froward to this
