The object of this course is to make the student more employable by being able to utilize Shielded Metal Arc, Gas Tungsten Arc, Gas Metal Arc, and Flux Cored Arc Welding Processes. Techniques include:
Lab time will also encompass training on torch cutting, fabrication techniques, tolerances, measurements, machine operation and maintenance. Students will have the opportunity at the end of their training to test in accordance with the appropriate industry codes (AWS, ASME). Upon successful completion of the course and the certification test, the student will receive a welder’s certification record reflecting the parameters for which they are qualified to weld.
Classroom Hours: 17%
The student’s classroom time will begin with a focus on welding fundamentals to include safety, equipment used for the various welding processes, and electrical principles related to welding. The student will be involved in blueprint reading, shop drawings, related math and weld symbols. Each welding process will be covered in depth using a combination of textbooks, media, and visual aids to ensure the student comprehends the instruction and requirements in the lab.
