Welding Technology (Certificate)

Course No. Course Title Credits
WTC 111 Shielded Metal Arc Welding I 3
This course is designed to teach the student the basic safety, principles, practices, and applications of SMAW. This course covers welding trade theory including safety, tool usage, equipment set up and standard terms and definitions. Basic welding and cutting techniques in the flat and horizontal position, tank safety and welding safety will be taught.   The course also covers basic metallurgy and how to identify weld problems and defects.
WTC 112 Gas Metal and Flux Cored Arc Welding I
3
This course is designed to teach the student the basic principles, practices, and applications of GMAW and FCAW. This course covers gas metal arc welding and flux cored arc welding in the flat and horizontal position. Students will be given classroom theory and hands on instruction in both processes. American Welding Society weld symbols will also be covered.
WTC 113 Gas Tungsten Arc Welding I
3
This course introduces students to the GTAW welding process. The equipment, consumables, practices and procedures are discussed, with extensive practice in the GTAW process in the flat and horizontal position. This course will also cover inspection tools, destructive and non-destructive testing methods and an overview of the AWS D1.1 welding code.
WTC 114 Shielded Metal Arc Welding II 3
This course covers the most advanced SMAW practices. The concentration will be on vertical and overhead welding techniques conforming to the AWS structural welding code. Weld problems, corrections and carbon arc gouging techniques will be covered in this course. Open roots will be taught for the pipe welding process as well as pipe welding codes, tools, materials and equipment needed for pipe welding. Prerequisite WTC 111.
WTC 115 Gas Metal and Flux Cored Arc Welding II 3
This course is designed to teach the student advanced principles, practices, and applications of GMAW and FCAW. This course covers gas metal arc welding and flux cored arc welding in the vertical and overhead position. Students will be given classroom theory and hands on instruction in both processes. Prerequisite WTC 112
WTC 116 Gas Tungsten Arc Welding II 3
This course is designed to teach the student advanced principles, practices, and applications of the GTAW welding process. This course covers gas metal arc welding and flux cored arc welding in the vertical and overhead position. Open roots will be taught for the pipe welding process. Prerequisite: WTC 113
BRT 101 Blueprint Reading 3
This course provides detailed information to help the students gain the skills that are required to read prints that are most common in the welding industry. Basic lines and view, dimensions, bill of materials and structural shapes are emphasized in this course. Accuracy of measurements and attention to detail will be stressed in the course.
MAT 100 Applied Mathematics for Welders 3
This course is an examination of basic arithmetic, (adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing whole numbers, decimals and fractions) as well as percents. This course also covers metric system measurements, computation of geometric measure and shapes, angular development and measurement, and including bends, stretch-outs, economical layout, and takeoffs.
