Basic Welding Training
This course is designed to give the participant knowledge of welding principles and safety considerations. The course will focus on: developing the basics of wire feed; tungsten inert gas (TIG); gas metal arc (MIG); and shielded metal arc (Stick) welding (SMAW). Brazing, oxyacetylene cutting and applied blueprint reading will also be covered.
After satisfactory completion, participants will also be able to view a blue print, interpret it, determine types of welds, and perform various fundamental welding functions. 120 Hours
