WELD150 - Intermediate Welding Technologies
The purpose of the Intermediate Welding Technologies course is to build on the skills learned from Basic level by adding horizontal, vertical, and overhead welding positions to electric arc and gas welding. This course will also provide the student with techniques and manipulative skills required for gas metal arc welding (MIG) and gas tungsten arc welding (TIG) on mild steel material in the flat only position. Intermediate Welding will increase the student’s knowledge area with welding blue print reading, field sketching, numerical geometry, units of measure, and other associated areas of welding including flux cored arc welding (FCAW), torch brazing and soldering. This course will provide the training to develop the skills necessary to make out-of-position fillet and square groove welds on mild steel material with arc and gas welding as well as basic fillet and square groove welds in the flat position on the mild steel with the MIG and TIG process by following the standards set forth by the American Welding Society used throughout the industrial workforce.
