WELD 151 Welding Industry Training
Hours: 54 hours LEC; 54 hours LAB
Prerequisite: WELD 110, 111, 113, 126, 127, 128, or 129 with a grade of "C" or better
The WELD 151 Welding Industry Training course is an advanced welding course that prepares students for immediate employment in the welding industry. Students will focus on specific welder qualification procedures to meet industry standards. Students will be able to practice on an industry standard welder qualification procedure in the Shielded Metal Arc Welding process (SMAW), Flux Core Arc Welding process (FCAW), Gas Metal Arc Welding process (GMAW) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding process (GTAW) during the laboratory portion of the course. The purpose of the WELD 151 course is to prepare the student for a pre-employment qualification welding test that is specific to an industry standard at the desired location of employment. AWS, ASME and API qualifications will be issued by the employer, not the college welding program.
Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
SLO 1: Demonstrate welding skills sufficient to meet industry welding standards.
