WLD 1224
INTRODUCTION TO ARC WELDING

This course is intended to teach theory and application of basic Astick@ welding (SMAW). It will cover safety, correct selection of electrodes, practicing beds and the application of correct welds on actual structures.


WLD 1302
METALLURGY

An elementary and practical approach to the structure, marking classifications, machinability and identification of metals and their properties. This will require the use of various manufacturer catalogs, bulletins and charts. Basic heat treatment and how metals are affected will be discussed.


WLD 1403
WELDING FOR TRADE AND INDUSTRY

This course is intended to teach theory and application of welding for trades and industry. This course will be specific to the needs and applicable to each area of interest. It will cover basic welding safety, correct cutting torch handling, basic gas metal arc welding (MIG), gas tungston arc welding (TIG), and shielded metal arc welding. Specific applications will be deemed by the appropriate advisor.


WLD 1405
POSITION WELDING

Pre-requisite: WLD 1224 or permission of instructor. A continuation of the study of Arc welding concentrating on more advanced weld positions and varied electrodes. This course will also discuss hardfacing, padding, and the techniques for welding pipe.


WLD 1503
GAS METAL ARC (MIG) WELDING

Pre-requisite: WLD 1405 or permission of instructor. Provides student with theory and application of wire feed processes also known as MIG Welding or semi-automatic and automatic processes. The student also gains an understanding of the basic gases and mixtures used for different materials.


WLD 1603
GAS TUNGSTEN ARC (TIG) WELDING

Pre-requisite: WLD 1405 or permission of instructor. Study of Gas Tungsten Arc (TIG) Welding commonly referred to as TIG or Heliarc. This course will focus on shielding gases, equipment and feasible use situations. Safety will be addressed and demonstrated in a lab experience.


WLD 1702
WELDMENT TESTING

Covers different types of testing such as destructive and nondestructive. Students will study guided bend, radiographic, ultrasonic, magnetic particle and dye penetrant tests, and take practical tests that are designed according to AWSD1.1 and ASME Section IX industry standard codes.


WLD 1804
CERTIFICATION WELDING I
