Courses and Descriptions

WELD-1102Safety, Hand and Power Tools

This course equips students with safety theory in performing welding and cutting operations. Students will learn the appropriate selection, use, and care of personal safety equipment, in addition to proper procedures and safe practices to follow during welding. Students will learn about the potential hazards associated with welding—welding fumes and toxins generated from metals, electrodes and fluxes, arc burn, and eye flash—and how to prevent them. In addition, students will learn about working in confined spaces and about rigging and hoisting procedures (i.e., setting up, using, dismantling, and maintenance). Students will also learn the correct use, maintenance, safe operation of hand tools, fasteners, and power metalworking equipment used in welding.
