This six week session is an introduction to a variety of welding processes commonly used today. This course is structured to provide a demonstration of the equipment and fundamentals of each process in combination with a description and discussion of the process limitations and typical applications. Students will gain an understanding and appreciation of these processes through hands-on application of the techniques used in the following: thermal cutting (OFC and plasma); shielded metal arc welding (6011 and 7018)); gas metal arc welding (ER70S); and gas tungsten arc welding (steel/stainless/aluminum). The structure and duration of this experience is a basic introduction and therefore it is not designed to build proficiency in any area.
Please note: Students are expected to wear leather shoes or boots and a long sleeve shirt. Safety glasses, helmet, gloves, and welding jacket are included in the cost of this program and will be yours to keep at the conclusion of the course or program.
