Welding Curriculum

Effective June 1, 2015


Welding Courses

10-442-112-00 Weld Print Reading
Develops print interpretation skills needed in metal fabrication. Learners study orthographic projection, dimensioning, welding symbols and bill of materials. Learners apply concepts in hands-on activities, practicing basic layout skills and safe operation of saws, shears and drills. Lab. Credits: 4.

 

10-442-113-00 Welding Fabrication Techniques
Expands on skills developed in Weld Print Reading. Learners study groove and projection welding symbols, geometric tolerances, and international prints. Learners apply concepts through individual and group fabrication activities. Lab, Lecture. Credits: 2.

 

10-442-158-00 Shielded Metal Arc Welding
Develops skill in shielded metal arc welding. Learners use titania, low hydrogen and cellulose "stick" electrodes to complete fillet and groove welds in all positions. Learners complete a 3G bend test conducted per  AWS D1.1 - Structural Steel Code. Lab, Lecture. Credits: 2.

 

10-442-159-00 Gas Metal Arc Welding
Develops skill in gas metal arc welding. Learners use the “mig” process in all positions on steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Required welds include fillet and groove welds with short circuit, spray and pulsed spray transfer. Weld quality is assessed per AWS D1.1 Structural Steel Code. Lab, Lecture. Credits: 3.

 

10-442-160-00 Flux Cored Arc Weld
Develops skill in flux cored arc welding. Learners make fillet and groove welds in all positions on steel. Weld quality is assessed per AWS D1.1 - Structural Steel Code. Required work also includes basic welds with the SAW process and backgouging with the air arc process. Lab, Lecture. Credits: 4.

 

10-442-161-00 Gas Tungsten Arc Welding
Develops skill in gas tungsten arc welding. Learners weld stainless steel and aluminum sheet and plate in the flat, horizontal and vertical positions. Required welds culminate in purged groove welds in stainless pipe. Lab, Lecture. Credits: 5.

 

10-442-163-00 Weld Inspection and Testing
Emphasizes measurement of weld defects and assessment of weld quality conformance to common welding codes. Learners conduct etch tests, bend tests and break tests on welds. The process of procedure and welder qualification is explored through group activities.  Lab, Lecture. Credits: 1.

 

10-442-165-00 Welding Metallurgy
Designed to educate students on metallurgy fundamentals. Explores the production of both ferrous and nonferrous metals. Students will experience rockwell testing procedures, heat-treating applications, determining stresses or strengths, and many other procedures to determine material properties. Lab, Lecture. Credits: 2.

 

10-442-166-00 Fund of Welding Machine Tool Operations
Introduces students to basic shielded metal arc welding, oxy-fuel arc cutting, and pipe welding operations. The students will also work with basic machine tools used in manufacturing and maintenance to develop skills using the lathe, drill press, band saw, and grinders. Lab. Credits: 2.

 

10-442-172-00 Safety in Manufacturing
Prepares learners for safe operation of work site equipment. Procedures regarding welding machines, band saws, shears, drill presses, punches, grinders, oxy fuel equipment and an array of hand tools are practiced. Crane and  forklift operation are introduced. Lab. Credits: 1.

 

10-442-173-00 Thermal Cutting
Develops skill in thermal cutting and gouging processes. Learners practice manual and machine oxy-fuel cutting, plasma cutting and gouging and air carbon arc gouging. Lab, Lecture. Credits: 1.

10-442-174-00 Advanced Gas Metal Arc Welding
Builds on skills developed in Gas Metal Arc Welding. Learners use the “mig” process in the flat, horizontal and vertical positions on steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Required welds include fillet and groove welds with spray and pulsed spray transfer. Lab, Lecture. Credits: 3.
