This program is designed for those interested in learning basic Gas Metal Arc Welding and Flux-Core Arc Welding. Course work includes an entry-level study with an emphasis on application of fundamental welding techniques and safe industry practices. This course prepares the student for an entry-level position as a Semi-Automatic Welder. The student will also be required to provide all PPE safety gear (personal protective gear) required to safely perform welds in the lab.
Program Student Learning Outcomes
Demonstrate basic level skills to produce quality welds in the flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions using semi-automatic welding processes: GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding) and FCAW (Flux Core Arc Welding).
