WELD-102

Flux Cored Arc Welding Lab

Credit(s): 2

The Flux Cored Arc Welding Lab course will focus on in-depth practical experiences and structured practical exercises in Flux Cored Arc Welding and focus on the American Welding Society's Entry Level Welder qualification requirements. The course will also emphasize practices and applications as they might apply to the welder in the workplace. This course provides instruction and practice on the basic to intermediate skills needed to weld with mild steel electrodes. Students will weld using common joints found in related industries Arc welding theory, equipment set-up, polarities, and the metallurgy associated with FCAW are covered. Students will weld on mild steel in all four positions. Students will be expected to gain competency in FCAW applications on mild steel. AWS and ASME standards will apply for welds on tee, lap, corner, and butt and corner joints. Lab: 4 hours per week
