Course description: This course is designed to provide instruction in the use of flux-cored welding process on carbon steel using small and large diameter electrodes in the flat and horizontal welding positions on fillet weldments.
Course objectives: The student will demonstrate safety procedures associated with Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW). Describe the effects of welding parameters in FCAW; and understand safety rules, equipment used, and testing performed by visual inspection. Weld various types of structural material and diagnose welding problems and perform visual inspections.
Lecture: This course provides the knowledge to identify the principles of Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW); describe FCAW welding operations of fillet joints; explain heat treatments of low alloy steels; and explain weld size and profiles; prepare plates; and the theory to perform fillet welds in the flat and horizontal positions.
Lab: The student will demonstrate equipment safety checks; identify Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) equipment parts; demonstrate the procedures for running a continuous bead in the flat position; demonstrate the procedures for welding a fillet, a lap joint, and an outside corner joint in the flat, and horizontal welding positions.
Course start date: Continuous Enrollment
