Welding Technology

Instructor, Allen Goodwin

+=WELDING TECHNOLOGY I (HC6463)
GRADE 11, 12 (3 ½ CREDITS)
Academy: Industrial & Engineering Technology
Pathway: Manufacturing
Prerequisites: LTCC application & instructor approval.
Welding is a dynamic industry with a BIG FUTURE! Anything made of metal, no matter how big or small, can be welded. Examples are everywhere, from vehicles like cars, trucks and motorcycles to rail cars, ships, aircraft, rockets and space stations. Construction is a huge market, and skyscrapers, bridges and highways would be impossible to build without welding, as would oil and natural-gas pipelines, offshore oil platforms, giant wind turbines and solar panels. Welders help install and maintain boilers antipollution systems and other large structures, as well as piping for industrial, commercial and residential facilities. Welding is even used by artists to create sculptures and decorative items. Welders are craftsmen and women who have hands-on skills to do a professional job. (www.careersinwelding.com) Welding is the most common way to join metal parts. Students learn information related to safety, gases, Filler materials, and equipment set-up for OAW-C (gas), SMAW (stick), and GMAW (MIG). Students will learn advantages of using these types of welding and the hands-on procedures for these processes. Students will have the opportunity to earn a G1 certification in SMAW and GMAW. Appropriate personal wear including safety glasses, safety shoes, and clothing will be required for activities.


+=WELDING TECHNOLOGY II (HC6467)
GRADE 12 (3 ½ CREDITS)
Academy: Industrial & Engineering Technology.
Pathway: Manufacturing
Prerequisite: Passing grade in Welding Technology I. LTCC application and instructor approval.
This is a continuation of Welding I including information related to safety, gases, filler materials, and equipment set-up for GTAW (TIG) and FCAW (flux core) with more advanced training on previous processes. Students will receive further instruction in welding on plate and pipe, more detailed blueprint reading, welding symbols, metallurgy, welding codes and manufacturing skills for the welding industry. Possible opportunities for internships are available. Appropriate personal wear including safety glasses, safety shoes, and clothing will be required for activities.
