Intro to Welding
Welding Technology provides students with an understanding of manufacturing processes and systems common to careers in welding and related industries. Welding Technology is based on, but not limited to, American Welding Society (AWS) Guidelines for the Entry Level Welder.
Advanced Welding provides students with opportunities to effectively perform cutting and welding applications of increasing complexity used in the advanced manufacturing industry. Proficient students will build on the knowledge and skills of the Welding Technology course while learning additional welding techniques not covered in previous courses. Specifically, students will be proficient in fundamental safety practices in welding, gas metal arc welding (GMAW), gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), and quality control methods. Upon completion of the Advanced Welding Technology course, proficient students will be prepared to complete the American Welding Society (AWS) Entry Welder qualification and certification.
