This 40-hour Welding course considers various gas metal arc welding (MIG) processes, including solid wire, and flux-core with emphasis on metal inert gas welding, as well as providing entry-level experience in gas tungsten arc welding (TIG). Students will demonstrate techniques of welding in MIG and TIG, in all positions, using various gauges of metal. Students will demonstrate their welding ability by doing a butt weld in the flat position using materials provided by the instructor. The project must then pass AWS visual inspection. Students will need to bring safety glasses, jeans with no holes or frays, steel toe leather high top work boots, and welding helmet.
