40 Hr. – Learn to perform production and maintenance welding on mild steel in the GMAW process. Upon successful completion you will be able to perform a fillet weld in the flat and horizontal position.
80 Hr. – Learn to perform bridge code welds and other related structural work, plus reading of welding symbols. Adds more hands-on welding time and includes oxyactylene torch training and introduction to welding symbols reading. This course also prepares you for the pipe welding program.
40 Hr. – Enhance your SMAW skills and learn advanced techniques about performing bridge code welds and other related structural work. Upon successful completion you will be prepared for passing welding tests in the SMAW process. Plus, be able to read blueprints and understand the different welding symbols. This course
Learn proper techniques and electrode selection for welding pipe to meet ASME (verticalup) welding code. You will be welding with E6010 & E7018 electrodes. The Pipe Welding courses include blueprint reading instruction and pipe layout for pipe fitters and welders.
Prerequisites: Must have 3G or 4G certification with E6010 and E7018 electrodes or will be required to weld sample tests before being permitted to start the course. Successful completion of our SMAW-Stick course qualifies.
