The processes covered will include Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), and Oxyacetylene Welding (OAW). Students will be required to weld lap, tee, and joints in the flat and horizontal positions utilizing each welding process. Furthermore, a visual inspection by the instructor will determine the acceptability of the weld joint. Oxyacetylene and plasma cutting will also be covered during this course. The instruction will be individualized and will consist of classroom instruction and laboratory assignments. Students will use information contained in the textbook, workbook, video tapes, and instructions and demonstrations by the instructor to complete the assignments. Students must purchase the textbook, workbooks, and all personal equipment.
