Shielded Metal Arc Welding (VTE711)

This 80 hour course will provide participants with a thorough, technical understanding of shielded metal arc welding, welding safety, power sources (AC and DC), electrode classifications, and electrode selection (E6010 & 7018). It also provides training to develop the skills necessary to make quality shielded metal arc welds in all positions (flat, horizontal, vertical up, and overhead) on mild 3/8 inch steel. Single and multiple passes using mild steel, low hydrogen, and iron powder electrodes will be covered. Upon successful completion, the student should be able to perform production welding, millwright work, and general maintenance welding. To certify, trainees must complete an additional 40-hour welding course in preparation for the following skills tests: fillet and groove welds done in the flat, horizontal, vertical, and overhead positions (visual inspection and AWS guided bend tests performed by an independent CWI).
