WLD 101 - Welding Fundamentals

Credits: 3
2 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours

This is a course on theory and safety procedures. Students develop competency in the following shielded metal-arc welding procedures: stringer beads, butt welds, and T-joints in the flat and horizontal positions. Students become familiar with oxy-fuel flame cutting equipment and its application.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Set up and shut down oxy-fuel equipment safely.
  2. Identify the three (3) oxy-fuel flame adjustments.
  3. Name the three (3) oxy-fuel flame configurations.
  4. Know the safe practices in shielded metal arc welding.
  5. Name the various mild steel electrodes used on direct current reverse polarity.
  6. Demonstrate multi-layered welds in the horizontal position using E7018 electrodes.
  7. Identify the difference between AC and DC currents.
