Interested in welding? Learn the fundamentals of welding equipment safety, nomenclature, controls, setup, and operation. On completion, you will understand and be able to demonstrate the fundamental rules of: general welding shop safety; equipment safety; proper welding nomenclature; use oxyfuel welding and cutting equipment. You will understand and describe: the chemical reaction in oxyfuel flames; select proper welding filler metal(s); cut straight, angled and contour profiles; describe the effects of torch angle, flame, filler material size, lap, tee and butt joints on thin gauge mild steel; interpret the characteristics in welding with DCSP, DCRP and AC current, and welding speed on gas welds; and use the SMAW process to interpret the characteristics of common welding electrode categories to set up and operate SMAW equipment. On the final day of this 40 hour course GMAW (mig) welding will be covered.

You will be receiving handouts so you may want to bring a 3 ring binder, also safety glasses, leather boots and 80% to 100% cotton work clothing (pants and shirts) are required to go into the lab area. The safety glasses can be purchased at Home Depot or any hardware store/welding vendor for a few dollars, the cotton shirt and pants can be picked up from any thrift store for cheap.   As for the boots if you have a pair of leather shoes we could probably make them work, as opposed to nylon or cotton tennis shoes.
