Course description: This class provides an introduction to Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) techniques on steel. Includes safety procedures, basic weld joint design, expansion, contraction, and residual stress in the welding of metals, in the flat and horizontal positions with thin gage material.
Course objectives: Students will be challenged to demonstrate proper set-up procedures in the use of (GMAW) equipment, and apply welding skills necessary to weld with GMAW process in the flat, horizontal welding positions.
Lecture: Students will learn to differentiate between industry standard welding inspection practices and how they best apply to given welding applications with GMAW process.
Lab: The student will learn to operate GMAW equipment using industry standard safety practices. Demonstrate the ability to produce quality welds using the GMAW process, in the flat and horizontal welding positions.
Course start date: Continuous Enrollment
