In this course students must come to class prepared to weld everyday. The first part of the course students will fill an x weil in the flat, vertical, horizontal, and overhead position using a sheilded metal arc welding process with 6010 electrodes. The next step will be to construct the different types of joint welds in all positions and bend the welds. The students will also design and construct projects. The second semester we will work with the MIG, and Tig welding processes. They will also use the oxyacetylene torch and plasma machine to complete projects.
