You would likely benefit from classes in the main types of welding you will likely peform in the home workshop, mig welding, stick, and oxyacetylene welding and cutting. I find all three useful skills. If you plan to work with aluminum or chromoly, then tig welding would be usefull. I've never taken any formal sheet metal training, so I can't advise. There are excellant books on the subject, and Ron Fournier's Metal Fabricator's Handbook covers both sheet metal and tube fabrication. I think there is a newer edition with an updated name. Anyhow, it's an excellant book for explaining tools and techniques.
