STI 214 - Ironworker Welding 3
2 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours
Prerequisites: STI 199
In this course students develop an understanding of the flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) process through classroom instruction and hands-on projects. Focus is on the knowledge needed to properly set up and maintain flux core components. Additional instruction and lab time are provided in order for students to successfully pass the American Welding Society (AWS) 1” groove weld test. Knowledge and skills are measured through performance and written assessments. The learning and application of safe welding practices are emphasized throughout the course.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Explain deposition rates and how they relate to amperage.
- Weld FCAW in the vertical position.
- Evaluate what types of materials should be welded with the FCAW process.
- List the various types of material used in FCAW and their limitations.
- List different electrode groups and classification numbers.
- Troubleshoot problems associated with FCAW.
- Identify the different types of weld testing.
- Certify on an AWS D1.5 1” groove weld test in the 3G and 4G positions using shielded metal arc welding (SMAW).
- FCAW in 1G, 2G and 3G positions
- FCAW trouble shooting
- AWS Welder certification test
