2 units Prerequisite: Welding 2 Welding Technology 3 students continue to study advanced welding processes. Students weld in all positions using SMAW, GMAW, GTAW, and FCAW. Students weld on carbon steel, stainless, and aluminum. Students learn destructive testing methods as well as visual testing methods. Students in this class learn how to obtain welding certifications in the (3G) and (4G) positions. Students practice advanced cutting skills using Oxy-Fuel and Plasma cutting torches. Students fabricate projects from blueprints and weld them with multiple welding processes.
Welding Technology 2 (LTC)
Grades 12, 11
2 units Prerequisite: Welding Technology 1 Welding 2 concentrates on the study of advanced cutting and welding techniques. Students fabricate projects from blueprints and design projects. Students may be eligible to participate in cooperative work experiences or apprenticeships, which combine career and technology training with supervised work experience in business and industry.
Welding Technology 1 (LTC)
Grades 10, 11, 12
2 units This course focuses on the physical properties of metals as well as the testing of welded joints. Students learn oxy fuel and plasma cutting. They also study welding techniques (shielded metal arc, gas metal arc, gas tungsten arc and flux core arc). Students study safety issues, read blueprints and design projects.
