Welding Workshop

Level I SMAW - Nights

Course Date

Tue May 28, 6:00 PM - Thu Jun 6, 9:30 PM (AKDT)

Course Location

Palmer Main Campus, 1740 N. Terrilou Ct., Palmer, AK

Course Format:

Tues / Weds / Thurs
6pm-9:30pm
2 Weeks

Course Objective:

The objective of this course is to be able to produce quality multi-pass fillet and bevel groove welds in all positions using E6010, E7018 electrodes. This course provides the student with a thorough and technical understanding of arc welding, welding safety, arc welding power sources, electrode classifications and selection. In addition, training will be provided to develop the skills necessary to apply the SMAW process (using low hydrogen and iron powder electrodes) in all positions on mild steel, ranging in thickness from ¼-inch to ½-inch plate with DC welding current.

Students will also be introduced to the oxy-fuel torch cutting process and be provided training to produce quality cuts on various thicknesses of mild steel using both manual and mechanized equipment. The torch will be used to scarf, cut plate and bevel weld coupons.

Tools Included:

Welding Hood / Welding Leathers / Safety Glasses

Items Required:

Steel Toe Leather Boots
State Issued ID Card

Course Cost

$750

Lvl II - The objective of this course is to be able to produce quality multi-pass fillet and bevel groove welds in all positions using E6010, E7018 electrodes. This course expands upon the Level I curriculum and provides the student with a more in depth knowledge and understanding of arc welding, welding safety, arc welding power sources, electrode classifications and selection. In addition, training will be provided to further develop the skills necessary to apply the SMAW process (using low hydrogen and iron powder electrodes) in all positions on mild steel, ranging in thickness from ¼-inch to ½-inch plate with DC welding current. The student will have option to take a welder qualification test at the end of the program.

Students will further their skills and knowledge with the oxy-fuel torch cutting process and be provided advanced training to produce quality cuts on various thicknesses of mild steel using both manual and mechanized equipment.

Introduction to CAC-A (Carbon Arc Cutter) will be used for destructive testing and gouging out weld metal.
