Course description: This course covers the welding disciplines students will need in welding, safety, proper techniques of the SMAW- Stick process, and electrode selection for welding pipe to meet ASME (vertical-up) welding code.
Course objectives: A students completing this course will be proficient in welding six inch schedule #80 pipe in the 6G 45 degree fixed position vertical up progression with mild steel ER-6010 and ER-7018 electrode. Also have the required skills necessary to pass the certification test of ASME section IX.
Lecture: This course reviews theory, joint configuration, pipe layout joint geometry, and types of pipe joints.
Lab: Students will be welding with E6010 and E7018 electrodes. This course includes blueprint instruction and pipe layout for pipe fitters and welders. Completion of this course prepares the student with the skills for taking the 6G weld test to ASME and AWS standards
