This course is designed for the basic needs of the manufacturing student, including instruction and practice in gas cutting and welding, arc welding in various positions and basic MIG/TIG welding. Topics also covered include safe use of welding equipment and machinery, abrasive cut-off saws, shears, grinders, and various tools to the welding field. Course is designed how to teach the student to weld with different electrodes in all positions. Emphasis is on the E-6010 and E-7018 electrodes. The students will safely set-up welding equipment, learn how to adjust it and how to operate it, and how to weld in all four positions. The learning experience is also enhanced by cutting freehand with the cutting torch and operating semi-automatic cutting equipment.
 
Admission Requirements: 16 years of age/High School Diploma or GED recommended.
Acceptable vision, ability to perform lifting and necessary body motions.
