WDSG 275 - Weld and Inspection Practices II

Welding and Inspection Practices II presents the opportunity to study the theory and practice of Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Plasma Arc Welding (PAW), Gouging (CAC-A) and Cutting (PAC). With an approach that combines a theoretical and laboratory learning opportunity, learners will explore how to evaluate cost control factors applied to the design and fabrication of weldments including: deposition efficiency, deposition rate, operating factor, process selection, control of over welding and electrode selection. As part of lab work, learners will calculate a cost estimate to establish labour, overhead and material costs including consumables and fuel gases for steel fabrication. Cross-referenced to the National Technology Benchmarks (NTB).
