WELD-1100Introduction Gas Metal Arc Welding
More Information

This course will cover how to safely set up and operate a Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) Machine and it’s principles. They will be able to describe and differentiate welding consumables according to the American Welding Society (AWS) classification system. Students will be proficient in using a variety of welding consumables and will be able to weld multiple positions, preparing them to weld various joints such as Lap, Tee and Corner. This course builds on the skills learned in Oxy Fuel Welding and Cutting. 

Prerequisites:
WELD-1101Introduction Shielded Metal Arc Welding
More Information

In this course, students will learn to safely set up and operate a Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) Machine and it’s principles. They will also be able to describe and differentiate welding electrodes according to the American Welding Society (AWS) classification system. Students will be proficient in using a variety of welding rods and will be able to weld multiple positions, preparing them to weld various joints, such as Lap, Tee, Corner. This course builds on the skills learned in Oxy Fuel Welding and Cutting. 

Prerequisites:
WELD-1102Safety, Hand and Power Tools
More Information

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. 

WELD-1103Oxy Fuel Welding and Cutting
More Information

In this course, students will learn the principles of oxy-fuel welding, cutting, and brazing. Students will identify and set up oxy-fuel equipment, reproduce welding, brazing, and cutting coupons, and perform oxy-fuel cutting. This course builds on the skills learned in Safety, Hand and Power Tools. 

WELD-2100Advanced Gas Metal Arc Welding
More Information

This course will build upon the knowledge received in the Introduction Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) course. Students will be provided with direct experience in performing Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) test in flat and horizontal position using solid filler wire, and metal cored filler wire. Upon completing the course work, students will have the opportunity to test for a CWB ticket with an independent inspector. 

Prerequisites:
