Week One: Welding I – Basic Welding Technology Training

This is the first week of training designed to introduce students to basic hands on cutting and welding processes. Upon successful completion of this week students will be able to:

  1. Understand welding and cutting safety
  2. Understand welding terms and definitions
  3. Demonstrate understanding of weld positions, joint design, weld symbols, weld discontinuities, base and filler metal identification
  4. Demonstrate skills needed for psychomotor techniques in commercial welding
  5. Demonstrate teamwork and efficiency

Week Two: Welding II – Basic Welding Technology Training

This week is designed to introduce students to welder qualification and certification, American Welder Society (AWS) testing procedures and standards, nondestructive testing and destructive testing in the flat position. Upon successful completion of this week students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate welding in the flat position (1G) with shielded metal arc welding (SMAW)
  2. Demonstrate ability to choose correct electrode size, current, arc length, travel speed and electrode angle
  3. Achieve an AWS certification in a 1G position

Week Three: Welding III – Basic Welding Technology Training

This week is designed to introduce students to welder qualification and certification, American Welder Society (AWS) testing procedures and standards, nondestructive testing and destructive testing in the horizontal position. Upon successful completion of this week students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate welding in the horizontal position (2G) with shielded metal arc welding (SMAW)
  2. Demonstrate ability to choose correct electrode size, current, arc length, travel speed and electrode angle
  3. Achieve an AWS certification in a 2G position

Week Three: Welding IV – Basic Welding Technology Training

This final week is designed to introduce students to welder qualification and certification, American Welder Society (AWS) testing procedures and standards, nondestructive testing and destructive testing in the vertical position. Upon successful completion of this week students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate welding in the vertical position (3G) with shielded metal arc welding (SMAW)
  2. Demonstrate ability to choose correct electrode size, current, arc length, travel speed and electrode angle
  3. Achieve an AWS certification in a 3G position
